Abstract

This presentation discusses two complementary digital projects to better document Black history and culture in Inland Southern California. The first is a community-based collaborative initiative between 3 local area universities to capture stories, experiences, and personal narratives from members of the Black communities in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties; the focus here is on collaborative digital collection building efforts. The second project is a related documentation project to locate notable stories, events, milestones, and people from CSUSB’s Black community; this discussion is centered on student engagement and the process used for surfacing relevant content in digitized university publications.
