We see history happening. We want to see it from your perspective.

Historians will remember 2020—a time of pandemic, economic crisis, police violence, and protest.

But how does it feel to be part of history? We want to gather an inclusive, wide-ranging, and personal record of this moment—a digital time capsule for future generations and a place for conversation right now. Here’s your chance to be heard—by your national museum, by your fellow Americans, and by the future.

Please note: The museum will collect stories from the public through April 30, 2021.
