Recognizing the significance of the events that took place the weekend of August 12, the University of Virginia Libraries are building an archive of materials that are relevant to the “Unite the Right” rally and its aftermath.
An online portal is now available for individuals who want to submit their personal stories to the archive: digitalcollecting.lib.virginia.edu/rally. This could include photos, videos, or just your recollections of where you were on that day and how it has affected you. We hope to preserve a large, diverse range of materials so that future scholars and researchers have access to and are able to tell the stories of this important event in local—and national–history.
If you have any physical materials related to the events of August 12 that you would like to donate, please email the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library.
The Claude Moore Health Sciences Library is committed to archiving the role of the UVA Health System as a part of the community’s response to the events surrounding the “Unite the Right” rally. If you are interested in adding to the archive materials specifically related to the work of the UVA Health System and its team members, please contact the Health Sciences Library’s Historical Collections and Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
