Dive into the tangled history of Cambridge politics and social activism by visiting 7 Cambridge archives from June 24-28.
Archivists at each site will share treasures from their collections that tell complex and unique stories about dynamic politicians and dedicated activists; fights over highways and development schemes; a strong mayor vs. Plan E.
See what an archive is, find out what archivists do all day, and see how you can use these resources to learn more about your family and community.
