The Authentic History Center is comprised of artifacts and sounds from American popular culture. It was created to teach that the everyday objects in society have authentic historical value and reflect the social consciousness of the era that produced them. Authentic also means conforming to fact, and therefore worthy of trust, reliance, or belief. To meet this definition by presenting an authentic interpretation of American history is our ultimate goal. When a collection is whole enough to be considered an authentic representation of the sources produced about an historical event, they are presented via interpretive essay. Until then, incomplete collections are presented as digital archives without comment for individual study. Additionally, a large audio archive of speeches and news broadcasts are presented for students to experience a level of historical authenticity distinct from written sources. The Authentic History Center is an ambitious work-in-progress and always will be.

Description: The Authentic History Center
Since so much of my time is dedicated to the creation of history, I thought it appropriate to tell a little of my own, about the path that led me here. My first brush with history was in my birth city of Detroit, during the 1967 riot. Since I was just shy of two years old, I really don't remember anything about it (I do remember playing with a very cute neighbor girl though). My recollection of the event is a series of photographs my father took of National Guard troops riding around in five ton trucks with fixed bayonets that were a part of our family photo albums.
