At the Corner of Historical Memory and the Documented Past
At the intersection of historical memory and the documented past, we find ourselves searching for the truth of our ancestors' shared experiences. We hope the realization of this truth allows us to recognize that shared humanity, pushing us past the slogans and clichés, and images the mainstream has conjured for us to believe. We are just beginning to unveil this truth, if only our hearts and minds were ready.
