Those who were in Dr. McGarry's Museum Studies class with Kat Boniface a few years ago might remember this project, then just getting underway. This is an immense and important public history project, which utilizes archives, material culture collections (especially at the host institution, the Kentucky Horse Park), and oral histories.

As public historians are very aware, our past is not so long ago as it seems- especially when if comes to the pervasive effects of racial injustice. Many "historic" riders and trainers are alive today, or have kids and grandkids that hold precious knowledge. This project has done an excellent job of not just building trust within communities- always critical- but also making space for communities to take ownership of their own stories.

Check out this talk to learn more!

You are invited to a free, online event, hosted by Equine History Collective, that includes a sneak preview of the Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry!

Thursday, August 13, 2020, 12:00 - 1:00 pm (EDT)
Hear from panelists including Yvonne Giles, community historian; Jeremy Reese and Rev. Leslie Whitlock, horsemen and youth program leaders; and Michael Phelps, graduate student intern and high school teacher. Learn how you can get involved too!

A public history project to watch!

Ok, #HATM community, here’s our big news: we have caught the eye of Netflix Film who asked us to create a thread for THE KING. It’s a huge honor for our community and the forum we’ve created to be acknowledged like this.

So what does this mean? I’ll be crafting the thread this weekend but I’d love your help, especially from our experts in English, French, & Shakespearean history. Watch the movie and send me your thoughts!

That said, we are still watching ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE this Sunday at 8:30pm Eastern so grab a friend for your weekly date with #HATM!

I’m proud of what we’ve created and the best is yet to come. See you soon.
