African American History

Document Collections

The library has acquired a number of collections containing works documenting the African American experience. Some of these collections are not fully described in The CAT and require the use of printed guides to determine what is available.

Jack Rabin Collection on Alabama Civil Rights and Southern Activists
Multi-layered compilation of documents, sound recordings, and visual images documenting the activities of the Montgomery Improvement Association, photographs and surveillance tapes of sit-ins, the Selma March, the Poor People's Campaign, oral histories of the white activists, and films of African-American activists.
