Archive of Urban Futures
The Archive of Urban Futures is a project in collaboration with Moms 4 Housing, an activated group situated in Oakland. The Archive utilizes the oral history of the Moms in order to focus on the erasure of the Oakland Black population. By recording the history, observations, and passions of residents within the community, the Archive will become a living database accessible to all. The recorded oral histories illustrate the future envisioned by the current and past citizens of Oakland who continually fight for the right to place. This Archive confronts the past and questions what the future could have been.
