Weeksville Heritage Center’s The Legacy Project invites you to Sensing History, a virtual experience exploring how Black practitioners have been using history and archival practices as road maps for navigating our present-day realities. Sensing History articulates feeling, hearing, digesting, and embodying the past as a living source. Weeksville Heritage Center is extending our personal contexts into something that not only evokes our living past and ancestors but also replenishes our bodies and spirits, and stimulates our imaginations. This virtual experience intends to share resources, offer support, and provide inspiration as we collectively envision ways through this unprecedented time.
