Minority communities currently make up more than 48% of Arizona's population but are represented in only 0-2% of known archival collections or have not been accurately represented in history. The panelists focus on their current community outreach efforts with historically marginalized communities in Arizona. Martin, curator of the Labriola Center, discusses her work with the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation on a digital humanities project, the ASU student club "IndiGenius," and an upcoming project using Murkurtu. Godoy and Varner discuss their current Mellon grant-funded project designed to reclaim and preserve the history of Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans, and the LGBTQ community. Attendees will learn how to engage diverse communities via community archives workshops, oral history projects, and digital humanities initiatives.
