PDA Event: When They See Us: The Black Male Archives Project

Thursday, September 23, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Rodney Freeman, founder of the Black Male Archives, will spend some time walking us through his initial ideas to final creation of this amazing project. The objective is to capture, curate, and promote positive stories about Black men to combat the negative images portrayed in the media.  Rodney recently left his library director position to dedicate himself to making his dream a reality.   During this webinar, he will also provide us with a demonstration on all the features of the archive and how libraries and archives can use this material for instruction and DEI related activities.  Come with your questions and suggestions on how to support Rodney's work.  

Rodney Freeman is a librarian, archivist who believes the practice of preserving your stories and memories is essential.  Rodney presents on a range of topics from diverse library leadership, digital collections, and programming while also presenting issues surrounding digital preservation and 3D modeling. In 2018, Rodney developed a platform called The Black Male Archives.
