Black Freedom/Black Borderlands

Black Freedom/Black Borderlands is a participatory archival project that will be created in collaboration with Haitian community members, immigrants, and residents living in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands from Tijuana to the Gulf of Mexico. Following model initiatives such as the Quipu Project, historian Dr. April J. Mayes will create an accessible, multi-lingual platform which preserves and facilitates the sharing of recorded testimonials, visual content and a podcast series about the Black movements and community formations from the Caribbean to the Pacific.
