Our Speakers’ Work
Rachel Williams (Gender, Women’s, & Sexuality Studies and Art & Art History) is writing and illustrating a graphic history of the Detroit riots of 1943, one of the largest race riots in U.S. history. She has relied on evidence, including newspaper articles and court hearings, from multiple archives. A set of NAACP affidavits in the UI’s Law Library provided a key source of inspiration for the work. Williams will present her work at the Archives Against Amnesia symposium at 4:00 on Saturday, March 3. (View schedule)
