Development of a temporary exhibition, including virtual elements, a teacher workshop, and public programing, examining the legacy of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century opium trade.

This project is an exhibitions planning grant that will explore the history of the 19th c. opium trade and the involvement of the Forbes family. The purpose of the exhibit is to examine the moral complexities faced by the Forbes in light of today's social issues like inequality and racism and how they impact our relations with China today. The Captain Robert Bennet Forbes House Museum requests $40,000 to support this planning effort.
