Join LancasterHistory for our first Collections Up Close tour where you’ll interact with historic artifacts and materials in the LancasterHistory collections. On February 25, celebrate the careers and accomplishments of Black performers and filmmakers with ties to Lancaster in this multimedia presentation. Listen to songs by The Trannells and The Crystalaires, watch a recorded performance by local group The Ham Boners from 1954, and join in a discussion of Madeline Andersen’s groundbreaking documentary film, Integration Report 1.
In Collections Up Close tours, LancasterHistory staff and visiting experts highlight documents, photos, and artifacts from LancasterHistory’s vast collections. In a conversational setting, participants will hear the stories of these objects and what they reveal to us about the history of Lancaster County and its place in American history.
