Abstract: This paper analyzes how stakeholder collaboration may provide a space for storytelling as a form of learning about local public history. The focus is on a research and development collective involving a university research lab and a grassroots community museum that specialize in collecting and preserving different perspectives on the African-American musical heritage of a city neighborhood (Hall & Space, Learning and Mobility Lab, to appear). As stories were discovered, told, collected, and shared, counter-narratives to dominant public history narratives were revealed. Analysis is focused on two iterations of a design-based research study in which high school students researched, authored and shared historical stories as they walked through city streets, curated gallery spaces and visited the museum. We highlight discoveries participants made about their community, neighborhood, and family history, and discuss how collaboration contributes towards the collection, preservation and sharing of counter-narratives as a form of local public history.
