The SGA Summer Workshop Series: Rooted in Memory highlights the value of Archives and Preservation in Black communities.  This 5-month series highlights the importance of preservation from knowledge production at the level of the body to institutional repositories.  These workshops center work of HBCU archives, archivists, and Black Memory Work(ers) and will take place during the Summer and Fall quarters of this year and will be open to the public. 

Workshop: HBCU Archives with Holly Smith

Description: Working at the intersection of Black memory work, feminism, and Archives creates a unique set of challenges that demand community-centered and care approaches to the historical record. The official repository for the papers of Audre Lorde, Toni Cade Bambara, and Selma Burke, Spelman College has become the preeminent resource for research on Black Intellectual life and Culture. In this workshop, Spelman College archivist, Holly Smith offers approaches to preservation at HBCUs, tips for first- time researchers, and direction for archivists and artists looking for institutional repositories as a home for their collections.
