Equity in Action Recipient Presentation: Lesbian Herstory Archives and the LGBT Community Center National History Archives
Join us for a project presentation from one of our esteemed 2022 Equity In Action Grant recipients!

The Lesbian Herstory Archives and the LGBT Community Center National History Archive partnered on a project to create a research guide to materials about Black Lesbians in each collection. Team members surveyed, created metadata for, and digitized on an as-needed basis both organizations’ collections, which encompass a wide range of materials spanning the 1950s to the early 2000s. Materials processed included manuscripts, personal papers, correspondence, graphics, photographs, and ephemera from both individuals and relevant organizations.

About the grant program: The METRO Equity in Action Grant program aims to support member institutions by providing funding that assists with new and ongoing efforts to preserve our cultural history. We endeavor to fund digital projects that focus on anti-racist practices and marginalized communities. Rooted in community and collaboration, this program encourages partnerships between organizations in order to cultivate a mutual knowledge exchange that empowers both parties and creates a pipeline for access.
