This Saturday, the SLC is thrilled to co-sponsor "The Upload":
Presented by Black Lives at Cal (BLAC), "The Upload" is an in-person event for our Black student, staff, faculty, and alumni community to share memories and memorabilia of Black life at Cal, celebrating culture and building connections across generations of Black community members.
The event will be held from 12-3pm on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at the Student Learning Center. This year, The Upload will begin with a lunchtime panel entitled, "Crafting a Collective Legacy", focusing on developments from the 1970s to the 1990s. Distinguished panelists include Black alumni, founders and leaders of Black campus organizations, faculty, and vice chancellors (see list of confirmed panelists here). After the panel, we will invite attendees to interact with memorabilia brought by attendees and from BLAC's growing collection. Attendees are encouraged to bring memorabilia such as photos, apparel, awards, and publications (e.g., newspapers, newsletters, reports, resources guides) that were made by and/or for the Black community at Berkeley.
Black Lives at Cal is a multi-year initiative to research, preserve, and publicize the legacy of Black people at UC Berkeley. BLAC is an initiative of the African American Thriving Initiatives in partnership with the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues. To learn more about BLAC (including their new self-guided Black history tour), visit their website and follow their Instagram account @blac.lives.at.cal!
