Archives, key sites for negotiating visions of the past, present, and future, have also always been sites of inequality. Decisions on what to collect, preserve, and make available powerfully shape whose stories can be told and whose are silenced. Digital tools have the potential to address some of these inequalities, but unequal access to technology has meant they have more often reinforced and entrenched them. This talk discusses an ongoing effort to address these failures of the digital by creating tools for a more egalitarian, decentralized, and collaborative archival practice.
