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
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
