American Women project featured in NHPRC Annual Report

by Jolene Beiser, Project Archivist

We are pleased to announce that our project American Women Making History and Culture: 1963-1982 was included in the Annual Report of NARA’s National Historical Publications and Records Commission. The report is used when the National Archives meets with members of Congress to highlight the great work the Commission supports. Our project is featured on Page 23 or click here: NHPRC Report – Pacifica Pages.

To quote Pacifica Radio Archives Director, Brian DeShazor, “As you will see, Pacifica’s broadcast legacy is being elevated to the level of importance in American History as the orations of Frederick Douglass and George Washington’s financial papers.”

We are so grateful to the NHPRC for their commitment to preserving the voices of women during the American Women’s movement, and recognizing it as a collection that will help “Document Democracy” for future generations. You can learn more about the NHPRC here. The report is available on the right sidebar.
