CBBG Sneak Peek!

Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations (CBBG) is BHS’s oral history project and public programming series examining the history and experiences of mixed-heritage people and families, cultural hybridity, race, ethnicity, and identity.

We are very excited to give you a sneak peek at the project’s website-in-progress: cbbg.brooklynhistory.org 

You can learn more about CBBG, upcoming Events, Project News, Who’s Involved, and we’re continually adding new oral histories you can Listen to via the online archive.

Also check out the first digital exhibit on the site: Interracial Brooklyn by sociologist Michael J. Rosenfeld.

Did you know that “if marriages in Brooklyn were completely random with respect to race, we might expect about 70% of all Brooklyn marriages to be interracial, instead of the 6% that actually are interracial today”?

There’s a lot of content that is still to come, more digital exhibits, more discussions, and eventually more tools for teachers.

We would love to hear your feedback as the site develops. Email comments to oralhistory(at)brooklynhistory.org

The CBBG website is made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
