The Bridges That Carried Us Over: Archiving the African American Experience in the Inland Empire, California
The Bridges That Carried Us Over is an ambitious project whose primary goal is to preserve African American history and culture in the Inland Empire, California.
The project has three objectives: to increase the awareness of stakeholders in the community about the importance of historical preservation; to engage these stakeholders in the process of preserving the information we collect, and to give the public access to the shared information across several digital platforms.
In order to complete our mission, Creative Business Services, Inc. will conduct and preserve oral history interviews, and will make these narratives accessible online. Further, supporting photographs and artifacts will be digitized and disseminated online along with archives related blog posts that seek to tell the story of the Inland Empire through collected resources.
