The Kutsche Office of Local History is hosting the 13th Annual Local History Roundtable on Wednesday, March 23, 2022. The event will take place in person in the Kirkhof Center room #2204 (Pere Marquette room), and be livestreamed on Zoom.

The program includes a panel discussion that focuses on making history a bigger part of West Michigan's public life and public discourse. It will explore how "traditional" institutions can broaden our understanding of historical narratives, value current community concerns in their work, and weave the past and present together in a variety of formats. Hear perspectives and local history projects from:

  • Kimberly Van Driel: Leader of The Women's Way mural project and Director of Public Space Management for Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc.
  • Matthew Vriesman: Founder of Anti-Racist APUSH and Kent County Pubic School System educator.
  • And other guests
