Your Story, Our Story

The Tenement Museum‘s “Your Story, Our Story” online immigration storytelling exhibition invites students to tell their own stories through objects, and curate their own exhibition about immigration as seen through the stories of everyday objects.

The Museum explains:

Museums have always asked visitors to imagine the lives of objects in their historic collections. Now students can share their own stories in Your Story, Our Story, a new online digital storytelling exhibit.

Your Story, Our Story highlights immigration and migration stories of the past and the present. Each story reveals one student’s family experience. Collectively, the stories tell America’s story and highlight the patterns that bind us together, no matter where we came from or how long we’ve been there.

Resources in the collection include:
