Scranton's Story Oral Histories & Portrait Photographs Spring Exhibition through April 21

Meet & Greet with the Project Team and Interviewees 

Public Reception, Thursday, April 4, 6:30 p.m.

5th Floor, Weinberg Memorial Library, The Ӱ 

Over the past two years, the Scranton community has explored themes of history, belonging, and identity through Scranton’s Story: Our Nation’s Story, a series of humanities-based programs that culminated in an oral history initiative called “Scranton Stories.” First launched in fall 2023, this exhibition showcases portraits taken by photographer Byron Maldonado and personal statements and interview links from 33 community members to give voice to a broad array of Scranton experiences and connect them to our national story. 

At the public reception, attendees will have the opportunity to meet members of the Scranton Stories team and oral history interviewees and discuss the project. 

For more information and to view all 25 Scranton Stories video interviews, visit www.scranton.edu/stories and via YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbsV7qLR2tZL78bScN3YbLnMRazF083yw.
