Neighborhood Explorations with HistoryMiami Museum: Miami, The Magic City
Join HistoryMiami Museum and 10 Days of Connection for a gallery tour of the exhibition Miami, The Magic City with Resident Historian Dr. Paul George. Featuring images from the late 1800s through the 1980s, Dr. George will share stories that highlight the many layers of life and activities that have shaped Miami over time. Exploring the sharp changes in the city’s development and direction provides a better understanding and appreciation for its uniqueness among American cities. The presentation includes a 45-minute lecture accompanied with photographs from the exhibition followed by a 15-minute Q&A.
10 Days of Connection is a community-driven initiative to confront the increased divisiveness facing communities across the country. It is an annual community-led challenge inspiring all locals to step out of their comfort zone and come together with people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, to unite in our shared humanity. From May 1 through May 10, 2022 multiple “Connection Experience” will be available to people throughout Miami and Broward County areas.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Miami Foundation.
Date/time: May 4 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Presented By:Dr. Paul George, HistoryMiami Museum Resident Historian
