CAMBRIDGE OPEN ARCHIVES: June 24 – 28, 2019


Dive into the tangled history of Cambridge politics and social activism at 7+ local archives. Archivists at each site will share treasures from their collections (photographs and art, posters and letters) that tell complex and unique stories about dynamic politicians and dedicated activists, fights over highways and development schemes and more. See what an archive is, find out what archivists do all day, and learn how you can use these resources to learn more about your family and community. 


This event is free but registration is required.
