Welcome to the Mix Now Open!

September 1, 2019

The San Diego History Center opened a brand new exhibit highlighting the oral history collection titled Welcome to the Mix: Each of Us Has a Story.

We believe that oral history has the power to enhance understanding and promote dialogue among citizens. Part of our philosophy involves telling the histories of everyone in our community, including those traditionally excluded from history books. In the past year, the San Diego History Center collected over 50 new oral histories. Through first-person perspectives and studio portraits, Welcome to the Mix provides a glimpse into some of the fascinating people and stories that will now be part of SDHC’s collection. The exhibition will run until January 2020.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org.
