Sound Archivist starts 2016 with a timely topic for today’s social and political climate – racism. Our two feature articles are “Trump and Racist Hysteria”, by Caitlin Oiye, and “Racism and Records Retention”, by Joshua Zimmerman. They describe examples of how Archives and Records Management can record, remind, and raise awareness of how racism has historically affected, and continues to affect America. Please read and consider.
Other archival news and events in this issue include King County Archives’ new collection search site, the reopening of Tacoma Community College’s Archives, and a request for nominations for this year’s Steering Committee Officer election. Sound Archivist, Winter 2016
