Black Lives Matter Digital Archive

Contribution Terms of Service

You are being asked to contribute your recollections, photographic images, video, and/or other media to the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities at Loyola University, which is developing a permanent digital record of the Black Lives Matter Movement. You represent and warrant that the material you submit was  created by you and was not copied from or based, in whole or in part, upon any other photographic, literary, or other material.

Your participation in this project will allow the general public, as well as future University students and historians, to gain a greater understanding of these events and the response to them. You must be 18 years of age or older to submit material to us. Your submission of material constitutes your permission for, and consent to, its dissemination and use in connection with the research and teaching mission of Loyola University in all media in perpetuity.

If you indicate on the form that your submission is “public,” your material may be published on the web (with or without your name, depending on what you have indicated) as part of the CTSDH’s digital collections or exhibits. Otherwise, your response will only be available to CTSDH-approved researchers. Submitted material must not violate any confidentiality, privacy, security or other laws. Please be aware that all submissions and any information associated with the submissions (email address, descriptive information, etc.) may be provided to federal, state, or local law enforcement or other government agencies pursuant to a lawful subpoena or court order. We reserve the right to discard or mark private any submission that CTSDH staff identify as offensive or irrelevant, or for any other reason within their professional judgment.
