I have to admit that, at heart, I remain a historian. I revel in the power of history to teach us and in many cases, bring us together. There is a fantastic program happening this Sunday, November 1 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm (registration starts at 1:30) at the Columbus Metropolitan Library that really delves into the ways that a shared history can bring generations together.
Passport to HIstory: Sharing Family Memoris encourages parents and grandparents to bring their school age chinldren that offers an opportunity fo the two generations to talk with one another about aspects of their past and present as they create a small “passport booklet” for the child to take home.
Our own Carole Genshaft will speak about how older family members helped Aminah Robinson create some of her best known paintings and collages. Russ Pollitt will discuss how famiy trees are constructed to preserve family history. John Lee will share his knowledge of how to make bows and arrows in order to deomstrate the changing nature of important tools in our daily lives.
You’ll have to register (you can email firstname.lastname@example.org), but it’s free to attend.
