The Missing Stories: Reclaiming History through Community Archives
"The Missing Stories: Reclaiming History through Community Archives" is a six-day institute for high school educators designed around the methods employed by community-based archives, which not only challenge dominant historical narratives but also give voice to marginalized communities. Our goal is to empower educators to teach histories that prioritize the narratives of marginalized communities, as documented by the communities themselves. Through their participation in the Institute, educators will be able to create lessons that illustrate for their students the vital role that archives play in promoting community wellbeing, facilitating dialogue, and shaping our understanding of both the past and future.
