Shining a Light
Greenwich Historical Society presents our annual “Shining a Light” lecture series, dedicated to elevating and amplifying underrepresented voices in local history in order to highlight the stories, research and people who are dedicated to interpreting, restoring and preserving these histories.
WPKN podcast Shining A Light: Uncovering Lost Voices in Local History
The Greenwich Historical Society had the privilege to be featured in the April 2022 WPKN podcast hosted by David Green of The Cultural Alliance Of Fairfield County.
Debra Mecky, Executive Director of the Greenwich History Society (GHS) discussed the Society’s dedication to uncover, elevate and amplify some of the lost or under-represented voices in local history. Dennis Culliton, founder of The Witness Stones Project, describes the Project and its impact on schoolchildren. Heather Lodge, Manager of Youth & Family Programs at GHS, and Stephanie Barnett, Public Programs Manager, fill out the story with details about the Witness Stones project and ceremony in Greenwich and more information on Bridgeport’s Little Liberia, the subject of Maisa Tisdale’s presentation. Listen to the podcast below or view the lectures on the Greenwich Historical Society youtube channel.
New programs coming soon!
Funding for this project is made possible by the State of Connecticut and the National Endowment for the Humanities, both of which provide significant support to Connecticut Humanities.
