Archivists will sort through signs from the Boston Women’s March this weekend
Boston Globe - 03/29/2017
After the rally was done and after the speeches and chants, many of the tens of thousands of people who had gathered in January for the Boston Women’s March protesting Donald Trump’s presidency dropped the signs they carried along Boston Common.
The signs were destined for the trash, but a group from Northeastern University is trying to preserve and catalog as many as it can.
This weekend, Northeastern archivists and staff members will begin the painstaking process of organizing the massive assortment of discarded slogans on homemade signs.
