For the past two years, a community-wide project, Scranton’s Story: Our Nation’s Story, has explored themes of history, belonging, and identity through a series of programs funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project’s final phase was an oral history initiative called “Scranton Stories,” which included an exhibit at the Hope Horn Gallery in Fall 2023 of portraits by photographer Byron Maldonado. The exhibit featured personal statements of each interviewee excerpted from their evocative interviews which give voice to a broad array of Scranton experiences. These stories connect them, and the city, to the nation’s ongoing story. During the spring semester, the “Scranton Stories” exhibit will be on view in the Charles Kratz Scranton Heritage Room on the 5th floor of the Library through April 21st.
