[NC] African-American documents to Archives
State Archives take possession of African-American documents
The State Archives has taken hold of a gift that will greatly enhance its African-American history collection.
“The nearly 3,000 private collections that have been donated over the past one hundred years to the State Archives include correspondence from every president of the United States, and from a variety of agencies and organizations including the NAACP and the Freedman’s Bureau,” said Evans. “The addition of Dr. Allison’s papers marks an important way to strengthen the resources available for African American history at the State Archives.”
The donation includes records of the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People (DCABP) from 1935 to the present; records of the N.C. Black Leadership Caucus (NCBLC), circa 1977 and 1980; brochures, signs, and buttons from the campaigns of Jesse Jackson in 1984 and 1988. Items from the National Democratic campaigns of 1992, 1996, 2004 and 2008 are also included.
