History Revealed Series

Wednesday, Noon
Landmark Center

Free and open to all. No reservations needed.

Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

Historian and oral history expert Barbara Sommers will talk about the process of collecting the stories of women who were on the front lines of the HIV/AIDS crisis. These community organizers, health care workers and volunteers recounted their personal and professional histories in a series of interviews collected for the Ramsey County Historical Society’s HIV/AIDS Oral History project. Barb will share some of the highlights of these histories, the process of collecting the histories, and how these women overcame the challenges, triumphs and tragedies of this then-unknown disease.
