Summary
"The volume Challenging History: Race, Equity, and the Practice of Public History brings together a collection of scholars and practitioners of public history in order to explore one of the most important challenges facing public historians today: how to engage their audiences on topics of slavery, racism, and inequality. The importance, and challenges, of speaking to public audiences about slavery and race has received renewed attention in recent years. This has included a number of discussions about how to interpret sites of enslavement as well as the work of organizations like the Equal Justice Initiative and their work to help localities confront the history of lynching. In recent months, the renewed reflection on the meaning of public monuments, and the removal of a number of those monuments, has served as a reminder of the significant impact that public interpretations about the past have in the present. For those working on the front lines of historical interpretation, the challenges of interpreting the 'problematical past' have stood at the forefront of professional practice for a much longer time. In a series of case studies and reflective essays, the contributors to the present volume guide readers through a discussion of successes, failures, and possibilities that collectively point the way toward a more inclusive presentation of our collective past. Far from being settled issues, these are questions that are at the forefront of public history practice as well as our collective political discourse"--
