The first day of a two-day symposium reflecting on the SNCC Digital Gateway Project, a collaboration between activists and the academy where those who made the history are central to telling the story. Activists, scholars, and archivists reflect on the creation of the SNCC Digital Gateway website and how the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee's organizing can inform struggles for justice, self-determination, and democracy today. In the morning, partners of the SNCC Digital Gateway Project will share the model they evolved to collaborate with activists, library professionals, and scholars. This model is a departure point for future collaborations, where those who made the history are central to telling the stories at every level of digital humanities production. In the afternoon, scholars, students, public historians, digital humanists, librarians, and archivists will engage in conversations with other practitioners about the nuts and bolts of undertaking respectful, collaborative digital humanities work. After the symposium, there will be a reception for "The Activist Archive: SNCC Collections in the Rubenstein Library" in the Chappel Family Gallery at Rubenstein Library.
