Arizona Archives Summit

Session 8: Black Culture and History in Arizona (2/25, 2:00 pm)

A panel discussion/roundtable about how the history and culture of black communities is documented in Arizona and what role archivists play in the process. Should we be “gatekeepers” of documented history or more “facilitators”? Would a more community-driven approach be more effective? What can we do better? Representatives from the City of Phoenix will discuss the city’s Ethnic Heritage Story Map project. Register for the event using this link.

Session moderators are Leah Harrison (SRP) and Shannon Walker (Arizona State University).
