The City Amplified: Oral Histories and Radical Archives (edited by Allison Guess & Prithi Kanakamedala) is a book of ten commissioned essays by archivists, activists, artists, and historians that reflects the creative and intellectual energy of the City Amplified working group. The essays explore the meaning of community-centered oral history archives and the ethics of archival work, rooted in a local context. The book also includes a detailed resource guide for those looking to start a community oral history project. The book features representatives of community partners such as The Laundromat Project, Interference Archive, Buscada, City Lore, South Asian American Digital Archive, Urban Democracy Lab, New York Public Library, American Social History Project, and others.
