NLM and Carpenters’ Hall Present: Past Tense- Turning to History in Uncertain Times

Carpenters’ Hall and the National Liberty Museum (NLM) will host a conversation on the power of history on March 29 from 5:30 pm – 8 pm at the National Liberty Museum.

From the NLM: Our relationship with the past has vast influence over our sense of self in the present, as well as the trajectory we take into the future. Yet our understanding of history is rarely monolithic; it is a complex landscape shaped by a range of perspectives, agendas, and experiences.

The panel will feature Michael Idriss, African American Interpretive Fellow at the Museum of the American Revolution; Don Wildman, host of the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum and the podcast American History Hit; and Jonathan Zimmerman, Professor of History of Education at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. Panelists will examine the complex power that history holds over the future and what is at stake in the battles we wage over interpretations of the past in museums, classrooms, and on screens.

Doors Open at 5:30 pm 

VIP Reception 5:30-6:30 pm (Tickets include an exclusive cocktail reception with hosts and panelists, with remarks from Don Wildman)
