African Activist Archive Project
Michigan State University
The African Activist Archive Project is building an online archive of primary materials – documents, photographs, artifacts, and written and oral memories – of 50 years of activist organizing in the United States in solidarity with African struggles against colonialism, apartheid, and injustice.
The African Activist Archive Project is collaborating with activists across the U.S. who supported African liberation struggles to create this online archive of more than 5,000 items. The project also assists individuals and groups to deposit their collections in public repositories, including the African Activist Archive collections in the Michigan State University Libraries.
The website includes:
Growing online archive of historical materials – pamphlets, newsletters, leaflets, buttons, posters, T-shirts, photographs, and audio and video recordings;
Personal remembrances and interviews with activists; and
An international directory of collections deposited in libraries and archives
