DPLA Plans New Collection on Black Women Activists

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) aims to highlight the role of black women suffragists with a new collection that “will help surface this history for patrons across the country and seal it into the national consciousness where it belongs.”

Investment and incubation company Pivotal Ventures will support the building of this collection, which will “be launched in conjunction with the centennial of the ratification of the 19th amendment in 2020. … [It] will focus on Black women’s activism from [the] 1850s to 1960s, including, but not limited to, their role in the women’s suffrage movement, civil rights movement and women’s [rights] movement. Cultural artifacts included in the collection will have a clear and compelling relevance to contemporary issues like voting rights and intersectionality, as well as contemporary movements like Black Lives Matter and MeToo.”
