WITNESSING HISTORY PROJECT
Witnessing History Project
As we live through this unique period of our shared history, where schools, businesses, and cultural centers are closed, and citizens are asked to stay home while essential workers continue to serve our communities, we must remember to preserve and document this moment for a broader understanding of how COVID-19 has affected communities and families throughout our region for future generations.
Our local history librarian Matt thought the “Witnessing History Project,” facilitated by Orange-Ulster BOCES presents K-12 students with a unique way to share their stories as part of an ongoing archive of first-person accounts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Hudson Valley.
You can learn more about this resource by going to our new “Citizen Historian” page on our Local History Guide. Here you can view additional local, and national history programs you can participate in!
