Transformation Talk: Race and Racism in Archiving

Archiving has a long history of systemic and institutional racism including how libraries and archives have collected, prioritized, and valued historical materials. Whose history is collected, or not collected, and how it is housed conveys value. Join us to learn from three local archivists and historians about the amazing work they are doing to collect, research, and preserve histories of local Asian American, Black, and Mexican American communities and more. If you’re interested in Dallas history you probably didn’t learn in school, this talk is for you!

Jun 15, 2023 Dallas Park and Recreation Board

At the June 15, 2023 Dallas Park and Recreation Board meeting, I spoke on behalf of the Dallas Mexican American Historical League and advocated for the placement of the First Mexican Baptist Church Texas State Undertold Marker at Harry Hines Triangle Park. The Park and Recreation Board voted in favor of this placement.
