    From our community to our community.

    United Memories' representation of the collective impact of COVID-19 on the Black community is made possible by the volunteer support of individuals seeking to humanize our most precious gift to this world, our people, our existence, our culture, our contributions. The magnitude of COVID19's impact on our community has been shocking and difficult to represent and understand. Please note that what we've made available here is only a fraction of our experiences and is a reflection of the ongoing research and contributions. To date, the focus of the project has been on naming and representing people with public announcements of their death. We hope to mobilize our community to help honor the many people who will not be identified in news or in other online memorials. In addition, the artist, resources, and historical context will supplement these initial efforts.
