ESSENCE Network: Archivist Gabrielle M. Dudley Shares How to Create & Preserve Your Legacy

This afternoon, my comrade & I went to hear Activist and Sistren, Seneca Joyner speak at Simmons College. Her lecture, “What Should Archivist Know About Doing History”, inspired our GSM team to re-post this article on another Sistah Archivist, Gabrielle M. Dudley. #GlobalSisterzMedia #SistaCipherChronicles

Stay tuned for more posts regarding this area of study…

As a high school student, Gabrielle M. Dudley was frustrated by the lack of information in school curriculum about the contributions of African Americans. After watching an episode of A Different World where students visited the library archives, she realized the career path for her passion to preserve and share African American history. Now Dudley is Chair of Archives of Color Roundtable for the Society of American Archivists and an archivist at Emory University where she handles rare materials such as Alice Walker’s manuscript for the Color Purple and bills of sale for enslaved Africans. See how she discovered her dream job and the importance of you documenting your own story.

Name: Gabrielle M. Dudley
