Honoring our History: Transforming Unique Collections Highlighting Social Justice
The Brandeis National Committee has existed to support Brandeis University in fulfilling its founding principles of access, inclusivity, and tolerance since 1948. In conjunction with President Ron Liebowitz's Framework for Our Future, the Honoring our History campaign will strive to fulfill the founding principles of access, inclusivity and tolerance by supporting digitization of the Brandeis Library's unique collections highlighting social justice.
These special collections, including the Leo Frank Trial Collection, the Helmut Hirsch Collection, the Jewish Feminism Collection, and the University Photography Collection, provide insight into the narratives of 20th century men and women living in a time of overt antisemitism, racism, and institutionalized sexism. These issues are problems that we still struggle to address today. The importance of providing global access to these narratives that highlight the fight for inclusivity and tolerance cannot be understated.
The digitization of the Brandeis Library's unique collections is not as simple as making them available online. This campaign will support the entire process of digitization, which includes ensuring the discoverability of these narratives outside of the Brandeis community and enabling forms of digital scholarship that can be used in schools and in research internationally. These unique collections, much like the narratives found within them, deserve to not only exist, but to be remembered, shared, and appreciated.
Despite the commuted sentence, Slaton's decision instigated a mob that was composed of prominent individuals, including a former state governor, to kidnap Frank from prison and lynch him on August 17, 1915. The events surrounding the Leo Frank case were instrumental in the founding of the Anti-Defamation League as well as spurring the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan.
The Leo Frank Collection at Brandeis includes letters written by Leo Frank, the majority of them from prison, as well as correspondence to and from his wife Lucille (who was a BNC member), and correspondence to and from Governor Slaton, Frank's lawyers, and others. This collection is widely used by researchers around the world including theater groups preparing for performances of the musical Parade, students researching antisemitism in America. documentary filmmakers, and many others.
The importance of the Honoring Our History campaign is not only to protect narratives like Leo Frank's, but to share these narratives with the world so that they can continue to be learned from as we continue to combat overt antisemitism, racism, and discrimination.
If you would like to support the digitization of the Leo Frank Collection through a donation to the Brandeis National Committee's Honoring Our History campaign, please click this link.
More information on our campaign and the collections can be found on the Honoring Our History website.
