Archivists from UTSA Libraries Special Collections gathered class materials and student work, then created this site in order to make the content available publicly for audiences in and out of academia. The primary objective of the course was to allow students, from all walks of life, to examine the sociocultural and historical contexts of #BlackLivesMatter. Our goal was to present the students’ journey throughout the course as authentically as possible. As you navigate through their projects, we hope you not only understand but appreciate their creative works as much as we enjoyed archiving it.
