About the event
The SGA Summer Workshop Series: Rooted in Memory highlights the value of Archives and Preservation in Black communities. This 5-month series highlights the importance of preservation from knowledge production at the level of the body to institutional repositories. These workshops center work of HBCU archives, archivists, and Black Memory Work(ers) and will take place during the Summer and Fall quarters of this year and will be open to the public.
Writing is the most unacknowledged form of preservation, yet the oldest form of preservation is written. "The Written Memory" workshop inspires the community to preserve memory, engage in writing preservation rituals and archival practices. This workshop will explore the practice of writing as a form of preservation such as journaling and recording your daily musings.
Ann is a Jamaican-born and Ghana-raised journalist with deep southern Black roots who enjoys the influence of Atlanta. In 2017, she began writing for The Atlanta Voice. Ann became the National Black Journalist Association "Black Press Grant" recipient to cover stories regarding the impact of COVID-19 on our national K-12 school system in African American communities in 2021. That same year, her article "Dear Black Man" won 2nd place in the Perspective Division of the 2021 "Robert S. Abbott Editorial and Opinion Award" from the National Newspaper Publishing Association. As the Community Engagement Editor for Capital B News, Ann is the primary liaison between Black Atlantans and the Capital B Atlanta newsroom. Ann Hill Bond's latest preservation work with The Atlanta Voice Newspaper focuses on historical narratives examining the understanding of the land and its connection with people of African descent through the legacy of racial terror.
