Reflections on Social (In)Justice: A Digital Collection

Posted on June 17, 2020 | Filed under General News

The Allegheny College Archives invites the Allegheny community (students, faculty, staff, alumni) to share their personal reflections about social (in)justice in light of the inequities revealed by the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, recent acts of racial violence, and the related protests by submitting creative works for the College’s digital collections. Individuals telling their stories is part of our entire community being seen, heard, and valued and is part of our joint commitment to creating an inclusive, respectful, and safe residential learning community that actively confronts and challenges injustice. This project intends to help us share our stories as a way to build understanding, strengthen our community, foster human connection, and preserve personal accounts of these troubling events for future generations and scholarly research. Visit our website to learn more about submitting your work or submit directly here. We will accept your essays, poems, photographs, videos etc., that share your reactions and feelings about the life-changing events of recent weeks. Tell us how these historic events in this turbulent time have impacted your life. We will accept your creative reflections at least through 2020. If you have any questions, please contact Ruth Andel, Archivist (merrick@allegheny.edu) or Beau Smith, Digital Resources Librarian (bmith3@allegheny.edu).
