History of BIPOC Student Organizations at Carleton

This LibGuide was created between 2021 and 2023 by Ella Johnson, Archives Reference and Collections Processing Assistant. The guide provides an overview of materials held by the Archives related to or created by the many BIPOC groups and organizations that Carleton students have created over the college’s history. For each group, the guide provides a historical summary, a list of archival materials documenting their activities, and a gallery of digital/digitized images, with links to the corresponding records in the Archives database. The guide also contains an interactive timeline of the history of BIPOC student organizing at Carleton.
