DAM New York 2023

The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media


The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, The Digital Transformation and Preservation of its Rich Archive Supporting the Ongoing Mission ‘To Educate’

September 14, 9:10 AM EDT

Dr Kelisha B. Graves, Chief Research, Education, and Programs Officer of The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, will share the challenges of transformation that come with an effort to digitize, catalog and build a platform designed to inspire new generations to continue and advance the work of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mrs Coretta Scott King, and to empower change makers who are continuing the effort today.

This session will focus on the archives, collections and everything associated with preserving the plethora of documents, paintings, objects, and compelling audio and visual records that tell the important story (and official living memorial) of the lives, legacies, and teachings of Dr King and Mrs King.

Along with the practical challenges of defining and identifying many of the metadata categories, Dr Graves will cover the strategic direction of The King Library and Archives and its plans for the future.

Before attending a HS DAM event, I never knew the true impact or importance of DAM. For the first time it felt like I wasn't alone, but part of something so much greater. I left inspired and motivated to take what I had learned and apply it our DAM system. I look forward to the event every year!

The Henry Stewart DAM NY conference did not disappoint. The breadth of topics and experiences covered were amazing.  I could have used three of me to cover all the sessions I was interested in attending!
