This session highlights a collaboration between American University, Montgomery History, and members of the African American community of Scotland, Maryland to create a new type of museum exhibit blending cultural anthropology, archival photographs and recordings, and community artifacts. Working together to uncover hidden aspects of the vibrant community life in Scotland, this team of collaborators strove to portray a fresh perspective on the resilience of Scotland residents. Panelists will discuss the ways they were able to connect across disciplines, in order to “keep the flame alive” both within the institutions as well as in the cultures they reflect.
