Episode 9: The Archivist's View
In this week’s episode I spoke with Rachel H. Simmons, the archivist for the Winter Park Public Library (https://www.wppl.org/). Working with the community to craft a more holistic narrative that weaves the collective experience together relies on the support of archivist.

Episode 8: A Conversation with Dr. Diedre Houchen
A Conversation with Diedre Faith Houchen about Black Education and Liberation In this week’s episode, we delve deeper into the black social world by examining a liberatory tradition in education. Historically, achieving education and economic stability were priorities for African Americans after the Civil War. The effort to achieve access to education is one defining aspect of the collective activism we see in black communities since Reconstruction. Those struggles continue, but to learn more about the legacy of education activism I spoke with Diedre Houchen, a postdoctoral associate for the Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations in the Levin School of Law ( https://www.law.ufl.edu/areas-of-study/centers/csrrr) at the University of Florida at Gainesville. Houchen's work exploring black teacher activism in the early 20th century sheds light on the hidden network of black educators that shaped the civil right narrative in Florida.
