The African American History Collection consists primarily of 19th and 20th century
pamphlets with an emphasis on racial justice and political action. From anti-slavery
tracts to civil rights leaflets, the materials in this collection reveal a nation's moral
and legal struggle for equality, and document the effects of inequity on individuals and
society as a whole. The collection's concentration of theme and variety of perspective
make it a unique and valuable resource for social and political historians.
