Caption This Activity: Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House
On April 7, we hosted a "caption this" exhibit featuring images from the Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House, a social services organization in East St. Louis. The organization has been in existence now for over 100 years. We have been scanning and labeling the photographs as part of a preservation project we are completing.
For our "caption this" activity, students took a look at some of the images and provided short write-ups. The activity gave us a chance to further highlight the Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House and consider ways to involve groups of people in engaging the photographs.
