About Us

The Freedom Archives houses over 10, 000 hours of audio and video recordings documenting social justice movements locally, nationally, and internationally, from 1960s to the present. The archives feature speeches from movement leaders and community activists, protests and demonstrations, cultural currents of rebellion and resistance. We are a multicultural and inter-generational community-based institution that seeks to bring people together to draw inspiration for our continued struggles. This extraordinary collection is a living testament to the long history of struggles for freedom and resistance to oppression. It brings to life the stirring sounds of tumultuous times that we cannot afford to forget — the struggles for Black Liberation and Native American sovereignty, the Chicano movement, women’s liberation movement, student and anti-war struggles, as well as major international events and powerful cultural performances.
