This panel discussion will explore the role of archives in documenting the faces of social justice in communities. This work can be viewed through two lenses: (1) archives physically preserve the unique identity of their communities and (2) that archival practice can be an intrinsic form of social and political activism. We will speak with archivists Carol Wells from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, Sharon Sekhon from the Studio for Southern California History, and Marisa Ramirez from the William H. Hannon Library. They will discuss their work including why they started their archives, and how their collections represent their respective communities. The panel discussion will be moderated by Associate Professor of History, Amy Woodson-Boulton. There will also be a pop-up companion site featuring select digitized items from each of the community archives’ collection.
