Intangible Assets Create Value and Equity

Julianne Richardson is the Founder and Executive Director of History Makers, a national archive of video oral histories that capture the story of well-known and unsung African Americans. Committed to producing, preserving, and providing easy access to an archive of videos from a typically under-heard community, History Makers increases value of the life stories from unrepresented stakeholders in the U.S. experiment. These intangible assets point to increased future value for this group of people who have been denied fair equity in the country they helped build.
