Disrupting the Narrative: Documenting and Advancing Institutional Change Through the Archives
The event is free. Please make a reservation to receive instructions for connecting via Zoom. Reservations open in February.
Presented by Linnea Anderson, Social Welfare History Archives, and Ryan Bean, YMCA Archives
Staff from the Kautz Family YMCA Archives and Social Welfare History Archives explore stories of the evolution of racial narratives in the social services. What narratives and voices are present in the records and what have past moments of disruption looked like? What is the role of archivists as caretakers of these documents and what role can these documents play in disrupting the narrative?
