I hope that people can recognize the incredible art and history within the archives and that it inspires them to create, remix, transform and share these materials. 

I hope that black and latinx students at NYU Tandon see this project and know that their legacy in this institution is eternal. They come out of NYU Tandon joining a hallowed group of engineers that have impacted the world through their research, reshaped industries and strengthed their communities.
