BLM Mural Project

 

 

Worcester Black History Project in partnership with Worcester Historical Museum is actively documenting the “BLM Mural Project” and we need your participation in recording this historic moment. 

How can you be a part of this community project?

Please, take YOUR place in Worcester’s history, by sharing your video footage and photos here. Mobile uploads welcome! Participation is easy. 

Recording history… 

Prompt

It is important to capture the “why” of the moment. Please prompt participants at the mural painting by asking them Why are you participating in today’s project?” 

Consent

Please ask all participants to record this script as part of any video for submission to the archive:

I (name of person or persons being filmed—spoken and spelled) consent to being recorded

for inclusion in the Worcester Black History Project archive in the collection of Worcester Historical Museum.
