Over the past seven years, we have been grateful and proud to build the Colored Colored Project (CCP) at the University of Delaware. We are thrilled to share news that CCP will next move to Penn State University to launch a Center for Black Digital Research which we’re also calling #DigBlk.
The Colored Conventions Project is thrilled to announce two new additions to the CCP team! In August we will welcome Amani Morrison and Kevin Winstead as CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources) Post-doctoral Fellows in African American data curation.
Our very own Professor P. Gabrielle Foreman was awarded the Outstanding Advocacy Award which honors “collaborative service, scholarship, teaching, and leadership efforts aimed at promoting, fostering, and implementing an inclusive environment.”
CCP project manager Lauren Cooper presented at the HASTAC conference in Vancouver, British Columbia on “Coming Home: Critical Curation, Participatory Archive Building” and highlighted how we can use digital technologies to construct and reorganize archives in order to better represent those outside of the traditional record.
We are pleased to share this news coverage featuring the work of our first satellite partner at the University of Iowa.
