The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Public History Project is a multi-year effort to uncover and give voice to those who experienced, challenged and overcame prejudice on campus. The project grew out of a campus study group that looked into the history of two UW–Madison student organizations in the early 1920s that bore the name of the Ku Klux Klan. Chancellor Rebecca Blank commissioned the Public History Project as one of several responses to the study group’s findings. The broad intent of the project is to ensure that all students and alumni are aware of the full history of the university, including the accomplishments of campus community members from marginalized populations whose stories previously may have been hidden or not widely known.

Please join us and Director Kacie Lucchini Butcher who is leading “a multi-year effort to uncover and give voice to those who experienced, challenged and overcame prejudice on campus” — as it builds toward a public exhibit in fall 2022.

If you have preliminary questions for the speaker, please email them in advance to program coordinator Mary Beth Plane marybethplane@yahoo.com by Tuesday, November 30.
