History as a Commonplace

“The exhibition will immerse visitors in one of the most unique decades in recent history; visitors will have a social space to share personal memories with family, friends, and each other.  The built environment will play a key role in communicating the narrative of these residents.”


This is a quote from one of my sources about my sight.  The author argues that it is essential to use historical houses and museums to celebrate black culture to counter the negative effects of gentrification.  This can be applied to my project because I can use history as a common place.
