Past Masters is HistoryIT’s new vlog series created to offer a more visual and personal account of our history saving journeys. From the beginning, we wanted HistoryIT to be an organization that helped bridge the gap between past and present, by telling not just facts, but stories. Through our digital museums, we’ve been able to tap into the emotions of history, uncovering hidden moments that make for compelling narratives. Join us throughout the year for our behind-the-scenes look into historic preservation.
Past Masters: Episode 3
Here at HistoryIT we love to save and share the hidden histories we discover, but we don’t love that they were hidden to begin with. In our latest Past Masters, Founder & CEO Kristen Gwinn-Becker shares her thoughts on the need to preserve LGBTQ+ history and one of her favorite historical figures.
