WriteGirl In The Archives

“History has bias and so does archival work; there is intense power in decid- ing what is important in an archive and what needs to be saved.” —Nova

“Archivists have the responsibility to uphold inclusivity in their archives to present a full picture of history and culture.” —Jenny

“…archives [are] a way to bring back power to the excluded communities so history will be enriched and diversified instead of learning the same strategic decisions of the past.” —Danielle

“The decisions of a few, the decisions of anyone in positions of power over information are vital to the future because they carry with them the possibility of erasing a person, per- spective, and story from the minds of others.” —Cora
