As the church takes action to reckon with structural racism, Presbyterians continue a season of seeking after absolute historic truths, in order to repair past harms.

On January 20, PHS Records Archivist David Staniunas led a conversation that explored how archives, as servants of power, both reveal and occlude truths in three stories: those of William Drew Robeson, Joseph Metz Rollins, and Memorial Presbyterian Church (Juneau, Alaska).
