About the Event
Session Three: It Started with a Song (Tim Hernandez–Archive of Manuela Garcia)
In this workshop series created by Raina J. León, we learn from the visionary practices of guerrilla archivists and community organizers who preserve community histories for the benefit of future generations. From an intensive investigation of the past’s materials, we will use writing as a bridge of time and possibility. Source examples include archival resources (Assistance League of Los Angeles) from the Autry and the study of writing from Reginald Dwayne Betts, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Tim Hernandez, and Layli Long Soldier. Workshops can be taken as a cohesive series or as individual sessions, and thanks to the generous donations of Autry supporters, we are able to offer them for free.
