HSP Responds to Current Events

As we watch and share in the grief and outrage of recent days, we are reminded that history offers context to help us understand the events of our present world. In the coming weeks, as part of the educational programming on our social media channels, we will be amplifying voices from the Historical Society’s oral history collections; these will include voices of Princetonians who experienced racial injustice and those who have been involved in the long and ongoing struggle for equity, diversity, and inclusion. As a community, we should listen to these voices. We should contemplate and acknowledge the challenging historical legacy of racism and discrimination in our own town, and in the nation. Only by grappling with the past can we process current events and collectively shape a better future.
