Mass Moments is not a website dedicated to celebrating public rebellions, uprisings, or other such activities of the masses, but rather it was created to serve as an electronic almanac of Massachusetts history. Started on January 1, 2005, the site serves as a repository of brief “moments” in the state’s history, such as vignettes that tell the story of Worcester’s first airport or Frederick Douglass’s first appearance before a white audience. Visitors can play each moment, or just read the script. Historic photographs and/or other documents, as well as a nice selection of sources for additional information accompany each script. Visitors can also search all of the previous moments by subject or geographic region, and in keeping with the times, they can also receive each new moment by RSS feed or podcast.
