Black River Academy Museum launches Covid-19 community memory project

LUDLOW—Every member of the community has faced dramatic changes, felt difficult emotions, and responded to the global spread of Covid-19 in a variety of ways. The Black River Academy Museum and Okemo Valley TV have partnered on a community memory project, because your stories are important and they are here to help preserve them.

Create a powerful personal record and family history by responding to prompts about your life in the Ludlow area during the spring of 2020. Your voice can also be added to the extensive local history collection at the Black River Academy Museum. With your help, future generations will better understand the unique challenges during this crisis and the resilience demonstrated by the community. They hope these activities serve as a source of reflection and inspiration now and in the future.
