The Power of Place: Race, Placemaking, and Migration

The retention of sixteen permanent staff to expand walking tours, conduct research, and develop a new exhibit.

The project consists of: 1) expanding the Tenement Museum's neighborhood walking tour offerings as the centerpiece of the Museum's socially-distanced reopening; 2) developing a new "Black Migrations" walking tour; 3) conducting additional research on race and migration that will enhance interpretation across Museum programs; 4) begin developing a new exhibit planned for 2021. This project will help the Museum retain 16 staff positions from May through December 2020 as it reopens and advance the Museum's 2018-2022 strategic plan to broaden the range of stories it tells.
