Outstanding Public History Project Award

Among the honorees at today's awards luncheon was a cell phone/vodcast tour created by Kathleen Hulser and others at the New-York Historical Society, entitled Slavery in New York. The judges, in their statement, expressed their admiration for "its multi-year timetable, breaking down of the North/South stereotype about slavery, suitability of the interpretive media documenting the 'workings' of slavery, interdisciplinary strength, and clear effort to teach students in various age categories as well as the general public."

A link to a segment of the tour can be found here.
