African Activist Archive Project

African Activist Archive Project - This project provides more than 4,000 original scans of records and memories of activism in the United States to support the struggles of African peoples against colonialism, apartheid, and social injustice from the 1950s through the 1990s. The project continues to assemble and display: - an online archive of historical materials - pamphlets, newsletters, leaflets, buttons, posters, T-shirts, photographs, and audio and video recordings - personal remembrances and interviews with activists - a directory of archives of organizations and individuals deposited in libraries and historical societies that are available for further research. The African Activist Archive Project is reaching out to the hundreds of organizations and individuals that supported African liberation struggles and is urging them to preserve their vital records and to make selected materials available to the public on this website. The project also assists groups and individuals to deposit their archives in public repositories, including the African Activist Archive in Special Collections at Michigan State University Libraries.
