Scope and Contents:
Anacostia Neighborhood Museum (ANM) staff discuss exhibition design and other details for Evolution of a Community Part II. They discuss how to best present each section of the exhibition: prologue, drug abuse, unemployment, crime, prison and rehabilitation, and education. The staff is particularly concerned with how children and youth will interact with and think about the drug abuse section; they discuss ways to further educate youth about drugs and how to emphasize the future can be different for the youth. Some of the staff is concerned that the exhibit addresses the problems, but not the solutions. They debate the role of the museum in the community, how to involve the Anacostia residents and community organizations further in the creation of exhibitions, and providing exhibition related activities and resources to the community. Additionally, the ANM staff discuss possible audiovisual components, graphics, photographs, three dimensional displays, and interactive elements to add to the exhibition. This recording also includes interviews with youth about their thoughts on the role of ANM and museums in general; and questions to ask H.R. Crawford, particularly in regards to his views on public housing.

At a board banquet, Dr. Boorstin, Director of National Museum of History and Technology, speaks of the problems of the historian and the museum director. Specifically, he talks about the challenges of research, interpreting objects, materials which are surrounded by controversy, researching the ephemeral such as oral tradition, and writing about subjects which have not been well chronciled such as what people ate, the American family, and the failures which lead to a successful invention. Boorstin titled his remarks "What Historians Don't Talk About." Question and answer session follows speech.
