The Pacifica Radio Archives is proud to announce it has been awarded a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission at the National Archives and Records Administration to save 1644 recordings described as American Women Making History and Culture: 1963-1982.
From our Press Release: “The American Women two year project will document the emergence and evolution of the Women’s movement in cities across the United States, and the unique role listener sponsored non-commercial Pacifica Radio played by providing a communications hub to create and broadcast programs expressing their struggles, philosophies, and victories.” Read the rest here or download the press release here.
Our grant category, Documenting Democracy: Access to Historical Records promotes the preservation and use of the nation’s most valuable archival resources and expands our understanding of the American past by facilitating and enhancing access to primary source materials.
We congratulate our archivist team, Jolene Beiser, Joseph Gallucci and the Pacifica Radio Archives preservation and access coordinator consultant, Adi Gevins for their astounding work.
