African American Studies Archival Collections: Overview

Black Archives Matter at SMU

In 2016-2017 an initiative called "Black Archives Matter at SMU" was adopted by several archival repositories at Southern Methodist University. The initiative challenged the archives to identify, process, and publicize their holdings that document the African American experience. Black Archives Matter at SMU culminated in the Spring of 2018 with exhibitions and special events held throughout campus, a student research symposium, and the publication of this research guide.
