Abstract: Brochure describes what visitors would find in the exhibit. The Clarissa Uprooted Exhibit (CUE) experience brings stories to life, following threads from the oral histories that provide lessons from Rochester’s disappeared village.

Interactives and arts–from poetry, music and virtual reality–immerse and provide tools for change.
