This is a digital exhibition that examines our local history, focusing on the stories of traditionally marginalized peoples. We are hopeful that the impact of these stories of perseverance, talent, and resistance will leave you with a better understanding of the living history we unknowingly walk by each day.

Those in power often write history, and marginalized peoples' stories and their impact on society have largely gone undocumented or recognized. Throughout this exhibition, stories are told through the absence of documentation. We hope to challenge you to question what other stories in our local history have gone untold.

We aim to portray this exhibit material in a manner that is respectful to the individuals and communities who create, use, and are represented in its presentation. However, for a variety of reasons, users may encounter offensive or harmful language, for example, language that is racist or insensitive.
