Radicalizing the Archives: Howard Zinn Centennial Event

On August 25, 2022, archivists, historians, and educators gathered online for “Radicalizing the Archives” during the week of activities to commemorate the Howard Zinn Centennial. The session drew on Zinn’s speech at the 1970 Society of American Archivists conference when he urged archivists “to take the trouble to compile a whole new world of documentary material, about the lives, desires, needs, of ordinary people.” The panelists highlighted efforts to humanize the archives. There were opportunities for attendees to meet in small groups so that everyone could participate.
