Documenting Community Activism

Olin Library and Rollins College Archives stands with other institutions in condemning systemic racism, violence, and discrimination. We invite students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members and others to share here about their participation in and experiences with the #BlackLivesMatter and other social justice movements for the purposes of documenting these important personal histories.

Archiving Your Activism

Olin Library and Rollins College Archives stands with other institutions in condemning systemic racism, violence, and discrimination. We invite students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members and others to share here about their participation in and experiences with the #BlackLivesMatter and other social justice movements for the purposes of documenting these important personal histories.

Documenting Social Justice and Activism


Social activism is critical to the development of a truly democratic society. Rollins College Archives collects and preserves the history of the College as well as the unique and important stories of our Central Florida community. In light of this mission, the College Archives staff is working now to document our community’s experiences during the ongoing international, national, and local #BlackLivesMatter movement and other important social justice causes. 

Therefore, we invite students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members and others to share about their participation in and experiences with the #BlackLivesMatter and other social justice movements in this simple online survey form.

In addition, we are actively seeking both digital and print artifacts (images, videos, flyers, etc.) related to current social activism and advocacy work, especially the causes of historically marginalized groups such as African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicano/a, Native Americans, LGBTQ, disabled, immigrants, and religious minorities. If you would like to contribute any of your personal activism or advocacy materials, please reach out to us via email at archives@rollins.edu. We look forward to working with you in documenting this critical and historic moment.

It is important to preserve individual histories and voices in this unprecedented time.
