Lecture Description

Building on her seminal article, “Archiving While Black,” Farmer offers a probing look into the complicated relationship between African American historians and the archival repositories in which they work. She offers a behind the scenes look at her research, at how historians research and write history, and at the challenges African American historians face in documenting this current moment amid the digital age. She also offers potential solutions for challenging racism and bias in archival collecting and management.
