UNC archivists are reaching out to communities that have been ignored by history (Media Coverage)
Author(s): Peaslee, Emma
Publication: Carolina Connection
Date: 4/6/2019
Abstract: UNC’s Wilson Library is renowned among scholars for having some of the best southern historical artifacts – photographs, letters, audio recordings used by researchers to write history. But there is a perception that you have to be a person of power or great importance to have your belongings stored there. UNC’s Southern Historical Collection is hoping to change that by rethinking the way archivists interact with communities.
