Abstract

Documenting urban activism is a complex endeavor for any archival program. The remaining record reflects the unpredictable conditions of urban living, as well as the passion of community members for various causes. This session will examine those considerations as pursued by three different institutions in the Mid-Atlantic. One paper will cover the legacy of activism found at the University of the District of Columbia and its predecessor institutions. Another paper will address the intersection of environmental and community activism as documented in the University of Pittsburgh Archives. The third paper will explore the relation of labor organizing, urban protest, and archives as captured in the Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation & Archives, Cornell University.
