Archives and libraries seeking to collect and preserve black local history embark on an exciting opportunity to foster trust, openness and self-awareness between cultural institutions and communities. “Building a Better Home” is a 2-day interactive workshop that will focus on building and strengthening partnerships that center the perspectives and needs of creators and preservers of cultural heritage. In an open forum with community members, archivists and librarians, this workshop will suggest strategies in archiving black history and culture, address capacity limitations, engage non-custodial models, and more. Participants are welcome to attend one or both sessions. Steven G. Fullwood, co-founder of the Nomadic Archivists Project (NAP), will lead the workshop.
