The Bells of the 16th Street Baptist Church

ileneOur excellent Education Director Ilene Dackman-Alon has guest blogged for AASLH (the American Association for State and Local History)!

Last month, I attended the AASLH annual meeting in Birmingham.  I had the opportunity to enjoy Southern hospitality at its finest, as well as meet other professionals that work in historic houses, museums, libraries, etc. from around the world. (I met professionals from South Africa too at the conference!)  I attended thought provoking sessions with noted scholars, educators and historians and took back ideas to implement in our education programs at the Jewish Museum of Maryland.  I also had the opportunity to meet the other members of Religious History Affinity Group at the conference and I look forward to working with them in moving the group’s mission of providing a forum in which history of all faiths may be shared, understood and appreciated.
