Race & Racism at the University of Richmond

Race & Racism at the University of the Richmond is an interdisciplinary, community-based project providing online access to selected archival resources housed at Virginia Baptist Historical Society, Rare Books & Special Collections at the University of Richmond, and The Collegian Newspaper Archive. This site was formerly titled "Digital Memory & the Archive," after the University of Richmond classes tasked with building content for this site. This site is home to those class collections, exhibits, podcasts, and resources. Additional information about the Project, programming, and related work can be found on the Project blog.
