This first call is for anyone with digital objects and knowledge related to Black life at UC Berkeley to share those items and/or contribute a short essay. At this time, we are only accepting digital artifacts that can be uploaded to this google form:

The deadline for submissions is July 15th, 2022.

Examples of accepted digital materials include but are not limited to:
