Historical African American Experiences at Cherry Hill: Lessons for the Digital Age

The retention of two staff members to expand remote learning opportunities about at Historic Cherry Hill.

With funding through NEH Cares, Historic Cherry Hill proposes to facilitate remote-learning opportunities and future classroom activities with a digitally-native teaching unit on African Americans at Cherry Hill, composed of (1) two digital document packages (~150 records and 25 objects posted to New York Heritage); (2) teaching and learning prompts for each; (3)activities and discussion points for three grade levels in alignment with NYS Learning Standards; and, (4) the development of a digital 3D model of the 1787 house to help students visualize and explore the places inhabited by generations of African Americans at Cherry Hill and maintain connections between the structure and the collections. Taken together, our two document packages and teaching materials will address how slavery manifested at Cherry Hill and its legacy.
