PDA Series: Documenting Community Movements on the Fly: A Case Study of Greensboro's BLM Demonstrations

Tuesday, June 15, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Presented by David Gwynn and Stacey Krim from UNC-Greensboro.

In the Summer of 2020, during the COVID lockdown, people took to the streets of downtown Greensboro protesting the murder of George Floyd. Knowing they were witnessing history in the making, archivists and librarians at UNC Greensboro rapidly organized a project to document people and events in the city and Triad region of North Carolina. In this workshop, David Gwynn and Stacey Krim discuss how to quickly implement a digital collection to capture history as it unfolds. This session is part of the NC LIVE DEIA Learning Series - a variety of webinars in June dedicated to showcasing the efforts of our member libraries in advancing equity and inclusion.
