We tell compelling stories from the past, while remaining true to high standards of scholarship. It is our responsibility to tell those stories fairly, accurately, and creatively. As James Baldwin wrote, "American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it."

“If history is boring, it’s the historian’s fault.” - Alexis Coe
