Arike Oke on The Civic Archivist (12 November)

12 November 2020, LSE (online)

Arike Oke (Director, Black Cultural Archives) asks do archives have a social purpose? British society today is increasingly divided, and divided along line of identity. History demonstrates that dangerous and revolutionary action can occur at these moments of deep identity based
division.

How should archivists respond? What responsibility do archivists have to documenting contemporary actions, or to activating their collections as tools for social justice?

Join us on 12 November at 6.30pm.
