This program will focus on the #BlackLivesMatter movement, spurred by police shootings and other incidents across the country. This is a "hybrid" grassroots movement, with robust digital and physical presences. Documenting such movements for both short-term use by students and scholars and long-term preservation is a serious challenge for 21st-century libraries and archives. The program will explore the ways that activists, academics, archivists, and librarians are collecting and providing access to the history unfolding today. This program is co-sponsored by the ALA Committee on Diversity and the ALCTS PARS Digital Preservation Interest Group.
