  • Live Webinar: History Check-In: African American Women's Suffrage

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 02/11/2020 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    FEB. 11, 2020 | 3 - 4:15 PM EST | History Check-In: African American Women's Suffrage is an AASLH continuing education event presented by speaker Martha S. Jones. This webinar asks how we can better incorporate African American women into our histories of women's suffrage and voting rights. This webinar is part of the History Check-In webinar series, a partnership between the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) and the Organization of American Historians (OAH). Each webinar in this series is designed to provide history professionals from throughout the field with an update on the current state of historiography for a particular subject.

    Webinar Description 

    This webinar asks how we can better incorporate African American women into our histories of women's suffrage and voting rights. This question challenges often stated assumptions about a narrative that goes from Seneca Falls to 1920. And from this vantage point, ratification of the 19th Amendment was not a clear victory in the struggle for women’s rights. As white American women celebrated being granted the vote, many black women remained disenfranchised for another 45 years. Southern states used laws and lynching to keep them away from the polls, just as they did their fathers, husbands and sons. American women appeared to have won a constitutional revolution, but across the South discrimination rooted in sexism proceeded in lock-step with racism. We will explore this other campaign for women’s voting rights – the battle against Jim Crow – waged by black men and women together. Their story began in the early decades of the 19th century, and culminated at last in 1965 with the passage of the Voting Rights Act. 

    This webinar is part of the History Check-In webinar series, a partnership between the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) and the Organization of American Historians (OAH). Each webinar in this series is designed to provide history professionals from throughout the field with an update on the current state of historiography for a particular subject.

    Webinar Description

    For individuals with developmental disabilities like autism spectrum disorders and their families, accessing community arts, civic, and cultural events can be challenging and at times, feel incredibly overwhelming. The uncertainty of new situations – will they feel overwhelmed, will their child have a melt-down and need to leave as soon as they arrive, will they be judged by other people – can be enough to deter an individual or family from seeking experiences that could be enjoyable and enriching for their child and for their family as a whole.

  • Live Webinar: Is Your Organization Ready for StEPs? (January 2020)

Join us for this free, one-hour webinar to hear how StEPs can help your organization create a road map for meaningful change. This webinar is for organizations that are considering using the StEPs program. Organizations already enrolled in the program should register for the free webinar, “StEPs Welcome (or Refresher).

    Webinar Description 

    Assessment programs like AASLH’s StEPs program are road maps. They are a valuable tool for moving an organization forward along a path and helping paid and unpaid staff, volunteers, and board members stay focused as they travel together along that path toward a set of common goals.  

    Organizations that can connect planning and fundraising to an assessment program gain credibility. Funders like to know that your proposed project is based upon goals that are supported by an assessment program, and that your organization’s progress can be measured.

    StEPs is a self-study assessment program open to any museum, historical society, historic house, site, or related organization. It is intended for small- and mid-sized organizations that do not feel ready for other assessment programs, but larger museums may find it useful for prioritizing and as a refresher checklist or training tool. Enrollment in StEPs is a one-time fee of $175 for institutional members of AASLH.

    Participant Feedback

    “This course was exactly what we need to improve our rather small Collection and take it to another step. Thanks for all of the ideas and information. I am especially impressed with how well the course is organized and presented online. The site was very well thought out and presented no problems for me – a slightly challenged computer geek-wanna be.”

    “This was a marvelous course and now I have confidence that I can do the work: material to reference and people to communicate with as needed.”

    “I just wanted to say thank you for having this course.  It has really helped me decide what direction I want to make my education in and had definitely helped me with some of the smaller preservation jobs I take on at the library.”

    Charles Arp

    Charlie Arp has a BA and MA in history from Ohio University where he specialized in archival studies. From 1991 to 2003 he worked at the Ohio Historical Society (OHS) where he held a variety of positions including archival processor, reference archivist, Head of Reference, Assistant State Archivist and State Archivist. As Assistant State Archivist he was the digital projects coordinator and he formed and chaired the Ohio Electronic Records Committee, an interdisciplinary group formed to draft electronic records policy, guidelines, and best practices for state and local governments in Ohio.  As State Archivist he was a senior level manager responsible for the planning, coordination, and administration of the operations of the State Archives including the Local Government Records program and the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor Archives/Library.

    In 2003 Charlie was hired by the Battelle Memorial Institute as Enterprise Content Manager. At Battelle Charlie pioneered managing electronic records in lieu of paper records. Charlie also supervised the Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) archives. GLP records fall under FDA regulations to ensure that the records documenting scientific research for substances put in or on humans are created reliably and maintained authentically over time. In 2015 Charlie tested and validated the use of an electronic management program to enable Battelle to create, manage, preserve and use electronic records as part of submissions to the FDA.

    In early 2016 Charlie accepted an offer for early retirement from Battelle. Since then he has started an archival and records management consulting firm and authored Archival Basics: A Practical Manual for Working with Historical Collections (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019).
