On November 8, the Community History 2023 cohort was joined by NJCH staff, past cohort members, and humanities professionals from around the state at Macculloch Hall Historical Museum for a showcase of their work. The event was an opportunity for reflection and celebration, with each organization presenting their projects and discussing their experiences in the program. The common theme that emerged from each presentation was the importance of expanding the historical narrative, a core value of Community History.

After an insightful hour of presentations, we opened the evening to conversation, food and drink, and pictures! Overall, our first venture into an in-person showcase was a success, and we’re delighted to have the 2023 cohort join our “alumni” community. Though we say farewell to the cohort for now, we look forward to keeping in touch and involving them in future program events!
