Dear Friends of The Extreme History Project,

Like everyone, The Extreme History Project has been faced with many challenges because of Covid-19. Unable to provide our usual full range of programming due to safety concerns, we made adjustments to our walking tours in keeping with mandated restrictions, continued to provide our lecture series via Zoom instead of in person, and introduced several new and informative events to support our educational mission.

This year the nation commemorated the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women voting rights. To highlight this pivotal legislation, we displayed an exhibit detailing the suffrage movement, curated another exhibit providing a snapshot of historic reproductive and contraceptive practices during the 19th century west, and facilitated a committee called The 19th Amendment: Expanding the Arc of the Suffrage Story, a coordinated effort of individuals and organizations in the Gallatin Valley who worked to change the narrative of the women’s suffrage story including the histories of indigenous women and women of color. Many of our lecture series presentations this year also dealt with women’s issues and women’s place in the historical narrative.

To further our outreach and maintain a dialog with our community, Extreme History started a Book Club with book selections relevant to the Montana experience. Supplementing that effort, we launched The Dirt on the Past podcast in which experts in a variety of fields discuss their research.

2020 has proven to be especially memorable and we have been witness to many firsts. What we do now becomes the history of future generations and informs our actions affecting that future. The Extreme History Project’s goal is to seek out and examine that history — good, bad or ugly — and share that knowledge with you. Knowledge is power, as is truth.

We are gearing up for 2021 and have been brainstorming new, exciting projects. To that end, we do ask for your help in achieving our mission. Your donations enable us to keep our research ongoing and our programming pertinent. Every dollar provides the vital resources needed to continue our service. Sometimes it really does take a village!

Sincerely and with gratitude,
