A bookcase of archived materials.

Primary documents and artifacts are the building blocks for constructing historical narratives.

However, the collections that house them have gaps mirroring the biases of society and curatorial practices. Whose stories are deemed significant and why? How can these omissions be addressed? Join curators, collections managers, and researchers for a discussion on building equitable history from the stacks.

We are excited to present this event in partnership with the Black Heritage Society of Washington State and the Labor Archives of Washington.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning are available during the program. For additional accessibility support, contact [email protected] two weeks before the program.
