Diasporic groups are leaving their marks in the United States through their community centers and archives or by joining the archives community as archivists. In the process, they are changing the practice of archives itself. The speakers address the impact of minority archivists and diasporac collections on our profession and challenge the concept of what Diasporas are in the archival context.
