Learn About Our History Through Art


The I Was Here experience merges the arts and humanities with history. This on-the-street museum explores the significance of memory, history, and ancestry and how all three come together to begin the process of healing spaces wounded by enslavement. The digital experience exposes the ancestral roots that exist within buildings, cities, and ourselves.
