From the HRA Section Blog: Promoting Transparency in the Legacy of Slavery & a Dispatch from the 2018 Community Informatics Research Network conference

The HRA Section blog is very fortunate to have not one but two excellent posts this month. Tabitha Cary wrote about archives in Maryland collaborating to make the history of slavery more accessible online. This post summarized the MARAC Fall session "Promoting Transparency in the Legacy of Slavery" and can be read here.

Itza Carbajal attended the Community Informatics Research Network conference in Prato, Italy and illuminated this innovative event. Topics included empowering communities through information and communication technologies, and building frameworks for keeping and accessing human rights records. Read Itza's post here.

If you're interested in covering a conference session, or otherwise contributing to the blog, email Blog posts can also be in the form of interviews, profiles of information professionals or collections/exhibits, opinion pieces about something in human rights and cultural heritage or something else as long as it involves human rights and archives.
