Life on Long Street: A Story of Trials, Triumphs, and Community in King Lincoln- An Exhibition Prospectus
Robertson, Karen Sue

2015, Master of Arts, Ohio State University, History.
A public understanding of the past is necessary in shaping the future of Columbus, Ohio’s King Lincoln neighborhood. This project uses images and objects from King Lincoln to propose a museum exhibit that can communicate a narrative of the neighborhood’s past to the entire Columbus community. The exhibit tells the story of continuous community formation in the face of outwardly imposed disadvantages by immersing the visitor in the sights, sounds, and people of King Lincoln’s past. The exhibit also takes a stand amongst the scholarship pertaining to King Lincoln’s history. The temporal scope of study has been widened to examine similarities in struggles across time, unweave interrelated community problems, and understand King Lincoln as a community of people rather than a geographically bounded neighborhood. Public history projects such as this exhibit allow both the King Lincoln and Columbus communities to better understand the root of contemporary problems in the neighborhood so that these problems may be solved.
