DHPSNY Dialogue: We the People/American Experiment: Intersectionality and the 250th

The upcoming 250th anniversary of the United States in 2026 is a crucial moment for New York collecting institutions to advance the field through intentional commemoration planning and programming. Inspired by the AASLH Making History at 250 Field Guide and the New York State 250th Field Guide, the focus of the DHPSNY’s 2024 antiracism programming revolves around building an inclusive 250th and the guiding question: "How do we make our collecting organizations interdisciplinary and representative of the realities of our many New York histories?"
This March, we invite you to explore the intersectional narratives of "We the People" and the American Experiment in what is present-day New York State during 250th commemoration and beyond. We encourage participants to critically examine their organizations' collections, exhibits, programs, and institutional planning through the lens of intersectionality. How will we reach all of our audiences? How do we get hard to reach people involved in this work? How do we keep folks engaged over multiple years? This program is designed for anyone who works in or volunteers for a library, archive, museum, historical society, or history/culture site in New York State.

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
