About

To commemorate the Archivist and Archives of Color Section‘s 30th anniversary, we seek to celebrate the contributions AAC members have made to the Society of American Archivists and the archival profession at large.

The Archivists and Archives of Color Section was established in 1987 as an interest group within the Society of American Archivists. The Section’s purposes are to:

  • Identify and address the concerns of archivists of African, Asian, Latino, Native American and Pacific Islander descent
  • Promote wider participation of said archivists in the archival profession
  • Promote the preservation of archival materials that pertain to people of color.
