The University of Virginia Collection on the Events of August 11-13, 2017 in Charlottesville, VA

The events of August 11 & 12, 2017 in Charlottesville saw loss of life, physical violence, and community turmoil significant enough to merit international media coverage. Our community will be recovering, assessing, and attempting to move forward for a long time to come.

Building the Archive

Recognizing the significance of events on the weekend of August 12, the University of Virginia Library is building an archive of materials surrounding the “Unite the Right” rally and counter-protests.

Donate your Materials

We are interested in your personal digital submissions (including images, stories, audio, or video) from the events at UVA and in the Charlottesville area, so that we may make these materials available to students and researchers studying these events. You have the option to keep your name private if you wish.

Read the terms and conditions for submissions.

Statement of Values

The University of Virginia stands firmly behind the Society of American Archivists’ commitment to ensuring the diversity of archivists and the archival record.
