Slice of History Event at the Indiana Historical Society

The Indiana Historical Society, where our 1600+ collection of historical works is housed, recently hosted an event called a Slice of History on June 18th, 2024. At this event, Gen Z and Millennials were encouraged to dive into the heart of responsible citizenship as they unraveled the individual’s vital role in shaping our collective destiny. We were pleased to be one of the stations, showcasing some of the historical works in our vast collection. This included Douglass’ “My Bondage and My Freedom”, Aristotle’s “Politics and Ethics”, the Declaration of Independence, and many more. We allowed attendees to handle and hold these books and documents, even permitting them to take pictures of themselves with the works at the nearby picture station. A big thank you to the Indiana Historical Society, as well as the Gen Z and Millennial individuals who attended this great event.
