The slides from my talk at HASTAC 2014 in Peru. I describe work done in documenting the lives of two Milwaukee civil rights leaders, Lloyd Barbee and Marcia Coggs as class projects at UWM, before discussing the politics of archiving media, and my work on the LSVA (large scale video analytics) project with the XSEDE program, ICHASS, and ASUs Nexus Lab.
