Event description
Join The TRiiBE in Chicago for a talk with archivists and Smithsonian reps about how to research and preserve our family histories.

About this Event

We are honored to partner with National Museum of African American History and Culture (a.k.a. the Black Smithsonian) to re-boot our panel series, TRiiBE TUESDAY!

Join us for a talk with archivists Renata Cherlise of Blvck Vrchives, Angela Ford of the Obsidian Collection, and Smithsonian reps about how to research and preserve our family histories.

Black folks encounter so many obstacles when it comes to accessing archival materials and records. Our editor-in-chief, Tiffany Walden, will talk through her researching methods for her nonfiction memoir series, Out West. She will also do a live reading preview of Out West Part III, which dives into the history of the West Side’s Madison Street. We will have research and photo scanning stations available for you to digitize your family records on site.

Meet us at the Farm on Ogden on Sept 17th (6PM-8PM) and bring the whole family with!
