We Raise Our Voices

The Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections preserves and makes accessible important and at-risk historical records of Boston’s African-American, feminist, gay and lesbian, and Latino communities. The exhibit We Raise Our Voices showcases selected documents from the Archives’ social justice collections. It points to the synergetic relationship between organizing a minority community to achieve political recognition and social equality, and developing a distinctive collective identity that is celebrated and expressed in many forms.
