Brea Museum selected to participate in IMLS Grant
The Brea Museum & Historical Society is honored to have been selected to participate in an IMLS Grant awarded to Naper Settlement. The grant will partner Naper Settlement with five museums - Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical 
Society, History Museum at the Castle, Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest, Ohio History Connection, and the Brea Museum & Historical Society - to launch "Unvarnished: Moving History Organizations to Interpret De Facto Segregation i the Northern ans Western United States".

The project will convene history museums in a collaborative learning community, along with scholars, practitioners, evaluators, and program specialists, to become thought leaders in advancing more inclusive narratives of systematic racial and religious de facto segregation, including restrictive housing covenants and sundown towns.

Project activities will result in an online toolkit of model practices, a digital online exhibit, and publications. The toolkit will promote more inclusive historical narratives, and help museums foster dialog about stories of the past that impact today's Americans. Please see our website for additional information and updates. www.breamuseum.org
