In today’s COVID-19 environment, many are looking for educational and engaging electronic resources. The HistoryMakers Digital Archive is the perfect tool. It contains over 2,600 of the 3,300 interviews within The HistoryMakers collection, which is housed permanently at the Library of Congress and is used in over seventy-five colleges, universities, and public libraries across the country. This program, The HistoryMakers Digital Archive: Innovative Uses, moderated by Sirius XM reporter Karen Hunter, features academic administrators, librarians, and students who have found innovative ways to use the content within the archive, from biographies and virtual book clubs to dramatic performances and other cultural programs. Joining Karen Hunter is The University of Virginia’s Associate Dean of African American Affairs, Michael G. Mason. The discussion also features a Q&A session with questions from The HistoryMakers Higher Education Advisory Committee.

This 90-minute program is scheduled to stream on YouTube and Facebook Live at 12:00 noon EST on Sunday, December 20 as part of the final installment of The HistoryMakers 20@2020: 20 Days and 20 Nights Convening and Celebration.
