The evening begins with audio excerpts from the Education Narratives Project, an oral history project initiated by Oral History Summer School in June 2020. Over the last nine months, educators have been interviewed by ENP interviewers every two-three months, covering subjects including but not limited to: remote learning, illness, progressive education, trauma, disability rights, Black Lives Matter, vaccines, and the future of education.

The evening honors these educators and brings to the forefront crucial issues in education today. How does this unique educational history shine a light on larger questions about the roles and rights of children and educators in our society, the difference between education and childcare and ameliorative uses of technology? What has been destroyed and what do we wish to create in its place?

This event was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Accelerating Promising Practice for Small Libraries grant.
