The Archives and Archivists of Color interest group is very pleased to announce G'Jordan Williams as the winner of the 2020 Travel Fund Award.

G'Jordan is a graduate student as well as Archives Associate and Education Programs Coordinator at DuSable Museum of African American History. In their application essay they wrote, "I plan to apply all skills gained, and all relationships formed to aid my mission to assist Black communities in safeguarding culture by applying transformative information science. Further, I plan to use the professional network acquired at the conference to help secure funding and resources appropriated for those who will take on the privilege of culture curation." 

Congratulations to G' Jordan, and many thanks to CAA members and friends for making this award possible. In light of the cancellation of MAC 2020, the Travel Fund Award will be used in the coming year to send G'Jordan to the archives conference of their choice. More details will be shared as they become available.

Update:  G'Jordan Williams used the Travel Fund Award to attend the 2022 MAC meeting in Madison, WI. See
