Join us for a two-part webinar series, “Archiving & Preserving Black Local History” on April 12 and April 19.

Collecting and preserving local history requires trust, openness and self-awareness between cultural institutions and communities. “Archiving & Preserving Black Local History” is a 2-day workshop that will focus on building and strengthening partnerships that centers the perspectives and needs of creators and preservers of cultural heritage. In an open forum with community members, librarians, and archivists, this workshop series will cover archiving Black history and culture, capacity limitations, and non-custodial models. Participants are welcome to attend one or both sessions. Steven G. Fullwood, co-founder of the Nomadic Archivists Project (NAP), will lead the interactive webinars. NAP is an international initiative that bridges the gap between content creators, institutions, and archival practice.
