Virtual Forum on Archiving the Black Web Scheduled for April 29-30

Virtual Forum on Archiving the Black Web Scheduled for April 29-30

PR Newswire

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla., April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Broward County Library's African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), recipient of The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership  Grant for their project "Archiving the Black Web: A National Forum to Map the Landscape, Define the Issues, and Plan a Strategy for Documenting the Black Experience Online," (ATBW) is pleased to announce its inaugural virtual convening, slated for April 29-30, 2021.

AARLCC, in collaboration with national partners Shift Collective, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Spelman College Archives, Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History, Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center and the African American Museum and Library at Oakland, will lead a national forum focusing on strategies for collecting and preserving Black history and culture online, as well as creating a support community for Black cultural heritage collections interested in web archiving.

The forum is organized by archivists and librarians that are focused on building collections related to the Black experience. Hosting a roster of dynamic scholars, activists, archivists, librarians and digital content creators, the forum will discuss projects and research that centers Black people in digital spaces as not only participants but as drivers of web culture. ATBW Forum will facilitate a critical dialog about the challenges and opportunities of documenting culturally relevant yet highly ephemeral web-published content by and about Black people. These conversations will catalyze the work of ATBW, which is to create infrastructure and framework for the future of documenting the web presence of Black history and culture.

Registration for the forum is required. Space is limited and priority will be given to library and archival registrants working at institutions whose missions prioritize collecting content about the Black experience. For more information, contact ATBW Project Director Makiba Foster at info@archivingtheblackweb.org or 954-357-6176.
