As part of the WPHL’s commitment to engaging and reaching public audiences both in and outside of the traditional academy, our staff regularly curates and designs new exhibitions—digital and otherwise—on some of today’s most pressing topics. From understanding Miami’s LGBTQ past to the origins and influences of the Harlem Renaissance to the ways we communicate public health during a pandemic, the WPHL is committed to rethinking and responding to how diverse audiences consume and engage material that resonates with their lived experiences.
