Digging & Decoding: Perspectives on Interpreting Historic Spaces

Dig deeper with Didi Dunphy, Dr. Freda Scott Giles, and Scott Nesbit as they share the process of a fuller and more truthful journey to interpretive spaces.
After our panel, explore the new exhibit on display at the Ware- Lyndon House which captures two descendants of the enslaved families and charts a musical journey that suits the rich musical history of Athens. The exhibit features family ties to the enslaved; David Wilborn Jr., whose father was born enslaved, and Hall Johnson, whose enslaved great-grandparents lived and were forced to labor on the property. This exhibit includes a reading room of books relevant to the African American experience in art, music, and heritage and a visual timeline relating a fuller and truthful story of this property and all its inhabitants.

This event is free and open to the public.
