IMLS Celebrates America250 With a Series of Virtual Conversations

IMLS partnered with PBS Books to produce Visions of America: All Stories, All People, All Places, a video series “that explores our post-pandemic nation with a renewed interest in the places, people, and stories that have contributed to the America we live in today” in honor of the United States’ 250th birthday and the America250 project. “PBS Books will provide free resources and offer webinars to support museum and library staff designing programs, including integrating the video content to host screening events and community conversations around the series themes,” IMLS shares.

Visions of America begins in June, kicking off with three virtual conversations between IMLS director Crosby Kemper and invited guests:

  1. June—The significance of the America250 project and the important role of IMLS as it supports museums and libraries to explore the America250 themes in their communities.
  2. July—The durability of the U.S. Constitution and how the America250’s ‘We the People’ theme can initiate conversations about the Constitution’s relevance in a changing world.
  3. August—Drawing on the America250 theme ‘Unfinished Revolutions,’ the conversation will mark the 75th anniversary of the desegregation of the military and its impact on civil rights and the definition of citizenship.

IMLS continues, “Beginning in fall 2023, Kemper will lead a video tour through three lesser-known historical sites that symbolize an aspect of the spirit of our independence. Some of our nation’s most notable historians and authors will share the tales and themes that reverberate inside the walls of these institutions. Each episode will include exploring the cities these institutions call home to probe what makes each of these communities so important to our national identity.”
