Conducting Listening Sessions

When Levine Museum and our two partner institutions, the Atlanta History Center and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, joined forces to look at how to engage Latino audiences, we had to find a way to listen that was both effective and replicable. Our Latino New South listening sessions were fertile grounds to learn to listen and how to listen best. The process, developed and documented by Levine Museum's educators, was published as a technical leaflet by AASLH in the Summer 2013 edition of History News.

The leaflet is available through AASLH:
