The Archives for Racial and Cultural Healing
The Archives for Racial and Cultural Healing “The ARCH™” seeks to properly acknowledge, memorialize, and be a catalyst to end the false belief In a hierarchy of human value based on race, embracing our common humanity, and permanently eliminating persistent racial inequities. The ARCH consists of qualitative and quantitative data and documentation developed, acquired, commissioned and accumulated on Black life, history, art, music, culture, and American history. The ARCH provides residencies, scholarships and training for and by leading Black cultural workers, entrepreneurs, scholars, and artists. The ARCH seeks to mitigate past harms and prevent future harms as we transform to a healthier and inclusive society free of a false belief in a racial hierarchy. The ARCH will be a publicly and digitally accessible library, database and tool, providing additional access through an open data portal linking elementary and secondary schools, libraries, HBCUs, colleges, universities and appropriate non-profit entities.
