This conversation with From Storefront to Monument’s author,
Andrea Burns, is a chance to think about the shifts in our field
that led to the new National Museum of African American
History and Culture. Burns will be joined for the discussion by
Yolanda Chávez Leyva, who is currently writing Interpreting
Latino History for Rowman & Littlefield’s AASLH Book Series.
These histories will resonate for all institutions that have
reclaimed stories, embraced identity, and connected to local
communities. Co-sponsored by the National Council on Public
History. From Storefront to Monument was selected by the
NCPH as the best public history book of 2015.
Chair: Andrea Burns, Appalachian State University, Boone, NC; Yolanda
Chávez Leyva, Institute of Oral History & The Borderlands Public History
Lab, El Paso, TX; Rebecca Shrum, Indiana University-Purdue University
Indianapolis, Indianapolis, IN
