Making Connections Across Town & Time


Jazmin will describe a program in a Boston neighborhood that brought together teens and seniors around a quilting project. Win will talk about breaking down misconceptions about Haiti and its history and how to share this eye-opening information with your patrons. Beef up your Black History Month and perhaps change your collection - maybe even your world view. Give Harriet and Sojourner a rest and showcase Black generals who freed half a million. If you think "Hamilton" the play is amazing - wait until you hear the real story of Haiti. It is a goldmine for both students and creatives. Learn how to share this with your patrons.
