We have partnered witht the Royal Alberta Museum in the production of Intangible Alberta.
The latest epidode is out now…
A half-century ago, if you stood on the doorstep of the Royal Alberta Museum, you would have looked down what was then 98th street to Hatti’s Harlem Chicken Inn. From the outside, it may have appeared to be an unassuming restaurant. But for Edmonton’s Black community, Hatti’s was more than just a chicken joint — it was a meeting place, where culture and community flourished.
The story of Hatti’s Harlem Chicken Inn is all around us: in local community history books, online articles, in personal testimonies, in photos and newspaper articles, in the memories of those who knew Hatti and her restaurant. Threads stretching out in space and time, and precious ones at that. In this episode of Intangible Alberta, Mat interviews Hatti’s family, community members, and local historians to try to gather these threads, to weave visible what might otherwise be subtle and hard to see.
Our pioneer-themed exhibits have been enhanced with modern technology. We have a vignette in each exhibit to give you a more in-depth look at how pioneers lived. Get a sneak peek here.
