Anti-Racism Archive



The police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in 2020 led to an acceleration of antiracist protest activity around the country. They also sparked a national conversation about race, racism, and anti-racism unlike any we have seen before. Looking back, future historians will want to know what anti-racism looked like in our community.

The Anti-Racism Archive seeks to collect and preserve materials that chronicle efforts to fight racism in Muncie and the surrounding area, and/or by Muncie residents and Ball State students, faculty, and staff anywhere in the world. The Ball State University Libraries Archives and Special Collections invites you to submit materials that document anti-racism efforts on our campus, in our communities, and beyond.

What constitutes anti-racism is specific to those engaging in it, and we encourage you to submit materials according to your definition as well as that provided below.

Participants are welcome to submit artifacts that engage anti-racist topics, loosely defined as topics that involve “the practice of identifying, challenging, and changing the values, structures, and behaviors that perpetuate systemic racism,” (Ontario Anti-racism Secretariat) such as: course syllabi; records of campus/community programming such as flyers, photos, or recordings; student, faculty, or community projects such as films, exhibits, or art; student work (with permission); oral histories and/or news and documentary accounts of current events; organizational records, correspondence, photos, or directories; public records from meetings or events.
