Toward Radical Imagination

HBCUs, Digital Libraries, and Authentic Collaboration

About the Event

Center HBCU Workers, Interrogate Technology, Learn About Authentic Partnerships

Thank you to those who were able to join us for this two-day virtual event where speakers interrogated ways digital libraries at all institutions might better represent diverse communities and experiences through collections, how technology might be furthering bias and performative diversity work, and what authentic partnerships might look like between HBCUs and other organizations, including predominantly white institutions.

We invite you to watch these topic-based discussions moderated by folks in the library and information science, education, and digital library communities.
