S03 E14: Black History & The Library of Congress with Luis Clavell

In this episode, we sat down with Luis Clavell, Program Specialist at the Library of Congress, to chat about the intersection of black history and the Library of Congress’ vast collection of African American history artifacts and collections. We spent some time chatting about the Rosa Parks Exhibition which Luis hand a hand in; specifically focusing on the lesser-known elements of Rosa’s life. Like her advocacy for the empowerment of young black women. Other topics we spend some time exploring is the important role organizations like the Library of Congress can play in bringing the histories of marginalized American peoples to the wider public.
