Endangered Archives Blog: United National Independence Party of Zambia Archive Online. “International Archives Day is celebrated annually on the 9 June – and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to give an update on the archives of the United National Independence Party of Zambia (EAP121), a project that was funded in 2007.”
New-to-me, from Quartz: The Museum of Women’s History in Zambia is changing how a whole country sees itself. “The Museum of Women’s History in Zambia has no physical space and yet it is already changing the narrative of the role of women in Zambia. Since 2016, its founders Samba Yonga and Mulenga Kapwepwe have been collecting artefacts that will eventually form part of the permanent exhibition that will be housed on the second floor of the Lusaka National Museum. Their collection already includes a digital archive of 5,000 pieces of audio from the colonial and post-colonial period and quilts sewn in the 1940s that record the entry of Europeans into southern Zambia.” Unfortunately the site has not quite launched, but you can sign up for notification.
