Venue Map


"History is the memory of the human race. Just as a person with amnesia would have no sense of who they are as a human being, the person who knows nothing of the past is cut off from their identity and has no idea why things are as they are. When we learn history, we PARTICIPATE in that memory , and we see ourselves as part of the story of the humans, the biggest story of them all."

-J. A. Miller
