ithp9.gif Through a unique partnership with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland, College Park, U.S.A., the Hector Pieterson Memorial & Museum is working to digitize the contents of its archival collections from the Student Uprisings of June 16, 1976. This partnership grew out of collaborative projects between Chief Curator Ali Khangela Hlongwane and Angel David Nieves, Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Hlongwane and Nieves have been working together since 2004. Both are looking to continue their unique collaboration through new exhibitions, publications, and archival projects that will help to expand the Museum’s collections and its unique mission.
