The Way We Worked – A Smithsonian Exhibit
Aug 9, 2014 to Sep 14, 2014
This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).
Created by the Smithsonian Institution and drawing from the National Archives’ rich collections, The Way We Worked explores how work became such a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and work environments over the past 130 years. The diversity of the American workforce is one of its strengths. This exhibition is an opportunity to explore how people of all races and ethnicities identified commonalities and worked to knock down barriers in the professional world, demonstrating how we identify with work—as individuals and as communities. It invites visitors to hear workers tell their own stories and to view films about various industries. Interactive components convey the experiences of multiple generations of families involved in the same field.
