U.S. history is full of glorious holes and unknowns. The Speculative Histories workshop will focus on using the powerful tool of imagination to see or to “speculate” truths residing in historical gaps for African Americans in order to envision a greater picture of the collective American past.
Using books, personal narratives, ephemera, imagery, and other tools as fuel to “see” anew, Speculative Histories will guide participants through imaginative exercises intended to ignite creative ways to read what is there and build what is not there, thus weaving a more complex and complete historical view of African-American and collective American life.
