Michelle Obama Branch, Long Beach Public Library

In 2018, CSU Fullerton history and American Studies graduate students got to know the North Long Beach neighborhood, developing a public history project for my graduate seminar in conjunction with the Lawrence de Graaf Center for Oral and Public History. Working with the urban educational non-profit organization We Are the Next, students researched the city’s history and prepared materials for historical interpretation on the web and a sidewalk exhibition along Atlantic Avenue to be completed later this year. The latest Outspoken podcast features three students who studied history in an entirely new way in Long Beach.
