New-York Historical Society opens new spaces dedicated to shows on equality and civil rights

“We’ve always seen ourselves as sort of the anti-textbook…there’s a lot of histories that just don’t find their way into textbooks or even history books,” says Louise Mirrer, the president and chief executive of the New-York Historical Society. “Those have tended to be the histories of traditionally marginalised groups: women, people of colour, African Americans.”
