Every Tool Tells a Story 

Tools are another link to the enslaved people, immigrants, Native Americans and free peoples. They tell their stories, life and work. Join us as we explore examples of tools used by men and women displayed in our newly refreshed Divided Voices exhibit. Participants will be inspired to craft their own tool and write its story. Drop-in for our first Second Sunday of the season.
