About this Event

The Community Archivists from the Austin History Center will provide an historical overview of the local ordinances and national movements which exacerbated already tenuous race relations in Austin. Workshop attendees will then participate in small group discussions to unpack the historical and contemporary contexts in which people of color (dis)engage with parks and public spaces today.

Some food and snacks will be provided – feel free to bring your own lunch!
