Historic House Museums Respond to Crisis Lecture Series

August 5, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

August 5: Social Justice – Meredith Horsford and Richard Tomczak, Dyckman Farmhouse Museum

The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum (DFM) has spent the last few years focusing on expanding their narrative. Like many traditional historic sites, DFM had previously focused on the history of the wealthy white landowners. Through a grant from The New York Community Trust, the organization has been able to rethink the story that it shares with the community both inside and outside of the museum. Meredith Horsford, Executive Director of the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, and Richard Tomczak, professor at Stony Brook University, will share how the museum now highlights the experience and lives of people that were enslaved by the Dyckman family, even during the global pandemic.

La Casa Museo Histórica responde a la crisis: ciclo de conferencias el 5 de agosto de 2021 a la 1:00 pm.

Únete a Meredith Horsford, directora ejecutiva del Museo Dyckman Farmhouse, y a Richard Tomczack, profesor de la Universidad de Stony Brook, mientras discute cómo el Museo Dyckman Farmhouse (DFM) ha enfatizado y ampliado su narrativa en los últimos años.

Históricamente, DFM estuvo centrado en la historia de los terratenientes blancos y acaudalados, como muchos otros museos de historia convencionales.

El Museo Dyckman Farmhouse, ahora se centra en la experiencia y la vida de las personas que fueron esclavas y que fueron liberadas, y que trabajaron y vivieron en la Granja Dyckman. La organización ha podido repensar la historia que comparte con la comunidad tanto dentro como fuera del museo gracias a la financiación de el New York Community Trust.
