Journey Stories Exhibition

The TSHA is partnering with the Smithsonian Institution to host a traveling exhibit between September 2014 and July 2015.  Journey Stories – accounts of how we and our ancestors came to America – are a central element of our personal heritage. From Native Americans to new American citizens and regardless of our ethnic or racial background, everyone has a story to tell.  Journey Stories will use engaging images with audio and artifacts to tell the individual stores that illustrate the critical roles travel and movement have played in building our diverse American society.  Teachers and their students from area towns who will host the exhibit, have been collecting oral histories and building website projects, telling journey stories from their hometown.  These websites will be incorporated into the Journey Stories exhibit while it is in Texas.

Make time to visit this wonderful exhibit at one of six stops in Texas.
