Whose stories do history groups tell?

I looked at what struggling historic groups can do to attract more people. Turns out one thing they can do is tell stories from a wider range of perspectives and points-of-view.

That’s certainly one reason I never cared much about history during school–because I never felt like I was hearing about people who I could personally relate to. And I certainly never heard about women during any kind of education about history.

Funny that now as an adult, I’m super-geeking about history, and really loving learning about all kinds of people and stories from back-in-the-day.
