“Finding Your People” Panel Discussion
9 February 2023
Time: 1:30-3:00 pm ET
Presented by: The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship for Diversity, Inclusion & Cultural Heritage at Rare Book School
The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship for Diversity, Inclusion & Cultural Heritage at Rare Book School and the Southern Historical Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Wilson Special Collections Library invite you to attend a special virtual event, “Finding Your People: Exploring the Past, Present, and Future of Documenting Black Families in Special Collections and Archives.”
The Black family, its structure, representation, and characteristics seem to be a near constant topic of question and conjecture in our society. What role do archives play in these discussions and our understanding of the Black family? This panel discussion will bring together faculty researchers and archival practitioners to discuss the representation of Black families in the archive as well as the history and impact of collecting. The event participants will also examine where we are at this current moment and what the future of Black family collections might look like.
This virtual panel discussion is scheduled for Thursday, 9 February 2023, 1:30 p.m. ET, and is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend, but advance registration is required. Click here to register.
