CRRJ Celebrates Launch of Burnham-Nobles Digital Archive

On October 7, 2022, Northeastern Law’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project (CRRJ) celebrated the launch of the unprecedented Burnham-Nobles Digital Archive, one of the most comprehensive digital archives of racial homicides collected to date.  The launch brought together archive co-authors Professor Margaret Burnham of Northeastern’s School of Law and MIT Chancellor Melissa Nobles, along with the dozens of former Northeastern students who worked on the archive since it began in 2007. Scholars from across the country gathered, as well as some family members of the victims whose stories are told in the archive.
