History to You serves to provide an interactive experience for students and members of the community that will make learning about history more interesting and aid in its retention. Our goal is simple: to stimulate positive change by increasing awareness of the cultural richness of African-American history.

What We Do
Why History To You?
What makes History to You unique is its ability to stimulate dialogue apart from the day to day monotony of books, tablets and documentaries. Because most historical facts are a few mouse clicks or screen taps away, many students and members of society as a whole have become more detached/less concerned with the significance of history and its cultural impact. We want to re-connect individuals with the past – with their past, their parents past, etc. – re-root them in history by bringing history to them – not via internet or virtual reality but in person. With a collection of artifacts at our disposal spanning the eighteenth through the twenty-first centuries, we are able to develop courses/lectures with applicable artifacts covering a broad array of subjects – with a desire to continue to expand the types of courses we can offer to further help our community.
