VISIONS OF AMERICA Series
Visions of America – All Stories, All People, All Places, hosted by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Director Crosby Kemper, explores our great nation and uses its diverse collection of museums, libraries and historians both familiar and new to tell some of the lesser-known stories that have flown under the radar in our shared legacy of American Independents.
Over the course of 3 half-hour episodes in its first season, the program journeys to different historical sites throughout the nation for conversations that tell the engaging but sometimes hidden stories that resonate with where we are at as a nation today. And they may even give some insight and inspiration on how we got here.
But history doesn’t just exist in a museum. Each episode will also venture out into the cities these institutions call home to delve further into what makes each of these communities so important to our national identity, all with the help of local historians who know the stories of their community better than anyone.
