Friends of Newtown Manor will host a free lecture entitled, “From Newtown to Georgetown: Connections and Legacies” by Dr. Adam Rothman of Georgetown University at St. Francis Xavier Church on Sunday, February 24, 2018 at 6:30pm.
Hosted by Museum Hue, National Trust for Historic Preservation
This Preservation Leadership Training®, developed in partnership with Museum Hue, will provide attendees with the tools and strategies to center underrepresented stories at historic sites. Over three days, attendees will learn best practices for interpreting, collecting, and building partnerships to replace exclusionary narratives with ones that honor the full American experience. Participants will learn from guest speakers, and from each other, as they talk through the challenges of updating interpretation at their historic sites. This work will culminate in a single real-world case study that will give them an opportunity to put their new knowledge into practice.
Civil War Trails Inc. will host a meeting for its members on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Virginia’s Eastern Shore, and Delaware. There will be a general program update, as well as updates from participating states. Please pass this invitation along to anyone who may be interested in attending.
