I owe huge debts to Alex Juhasz, who helped me to conceive of the project and to Maggie Jobson-Baker who created the fabulous design.  The staff of the Alliance for Visual Culture, in particular Craig Dietrich, have been extremely helpful.  

Without archivists there is no history, and this work is reliant on the amazing work of archivists in academic and community archives.  Kelly Wooten was my guide during a wonderful visit to the Sallie Bingham Collection.  I am always astounded by Lesbian Herstory Archives.  I am so grateful they had the insight to collect Audre Lorde's taped talks and for forging the partnerships with Prof. Anthony Cocciolo and his students from the Pratt School of Information and Library Sciences (Pratt SILS) that led to their online archives.  

For input, critique, comments, there are many many people from Twitter who helped me to think out loud and write in public, but in particular, I want to thank Tricia Matthew, Damaris Hill, Shane Lundrum, Julie Enzer, Adeline Koh, Jessica M. Johnson.

But most of all, to Bonnie Johnson, wherever she is now, I owe the greatest debts.  I have often wondered if she would ever come across this project and if so what she would think of it.  This project is dedicated to her, and the countless other participants in social movements whose stories and contributions are occluded by historians and the writing of history.
