We describe using community of inquiry (CoI) as a framework to problematize dominant narratives by asking, “Whose stories are absented? Who benefits from those silences?” We discuss how our Community Knowledge Librarian is exploring the answers via three initiatives: (1) Personal digital archiving services to assess digital inclusion literacies (Urban Libraries Council, The Edge); (2) “Discovering” a significant collection of a civil rights leader and first African American elected to office in Evansville, IN; and (3) “History as it Happens”, a rapid-response collection of civic action, featuring a President Trump rally (2018) and protests of “Drag Queen Story Hour” (2018-2019).
