Mapping the African American Past (MAAP), hosted by Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning, is comprised of web-based educational modules that stem from partnerships forged between educators, technologists, archaeologists, and students to construct accessible interrelated landscapes.  Linking digitized contributions from local historical societies, libraries, and family genealogies, transforming palimpsest into lesson plans and downloadable audio walking tours, creates geographies of memory.  For archaeologists, technology offers ways to layer interpretations that include voices beyond our own. This paper explores the implications and potential of the MAAP model for archaeologists engaged in public work.
