Ҵý's Story Oral Histories & Portrait Photographs Spring Exhibition through April 21

Meet & Greet with the Project Team and Interviewees 

Public Reception, Thursday, April 4, 6:30 p.m.

5th Floor, Weinberg Memorial Library, The Ҵý 

Over the past two years, the Ҵý community has explored themes of history, belonging, and identity through Ҵý’s Story: Our Nation’s Story, a series of humanities-based programs that culminated in an oral history initiative called “Ҵý Stories.” First launched in fall 2023, this exhibition showcases portraits taken by photographer Byron Maldonado and personal statements and interview links from 33 community members to give voice to a broad array of Ҵý experiences and connect them to our national story. 

At the public reception, attendees will have the opportunity to meet members of the Ҵý Stories team and oral history interviewees and discuss the project. 

For more information and to view all 25 Ҵý Stories video interviews, visit  and via YouTube here: . 

The exhibition is free during library hours. For more information contact Michael Knies at 570-941-6341 or Michael.knies@scranton.edu
