UMW Special Collections and University Archives recognizes that archives are not neutral, and that we have a responsibility to ethically steward an inclusive, diverse, accessible narrative of our institution, and one that amplifies those voices that traditionally go unheard. We actively work to make sure that when we help tell the story of Mary Washington, everyone gets to speak. This article looks at our Archives' development of a growing oral history collection that we hope serves this goal.
