Liberated Archives for Black Lives

Presenters: Teressa Raiford (Don't Shoot Portland)
Liberated Archives for Black Lives centers education and documentation for preservation, art and history. Through our partnership with the City of Portland Archives, Don’t Shoot Portland has been able to gain access to informational archives and relate them to our current systems - these educational assets are vital to sustaining social change. Participants of this webinar will learn how to connect with communities to build dialogue regarding the importance of local preservation of Black Civil Rights. They will learn from our workshop the types of events, materials and community partnerships we have used and ways to develop these relationships for the direct benefit of community access. The intended audience for this webinar would be archivists, historians, librarians, artists, activists, community educators and organizers.
