The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Frank Marshall Davis collection

Repository: Washington University. Film and Media Archive

Collection Description (Extant): This collection contains an interview conducted with Frank Marshall Davis, notable African-American poet and journalist and former head of the American Negro Press, and recordings of poetry readings, photographs and news clippings. The Film and Media Archive partnered with the Center for Labor Education and Research (CLEAR) at the University of Hawai'i to preserve and digitize this interview.

The interview was conducted in 1987 as part of a planned long form documentary about the life Frank Marshall Davis. However, Davis died before the program was completed. A shorter 30 minute program was created as a tribute to Davis for the Rice and Roses series produced by CLEAR. The program aired on Hawai'i Public Television.

Access Copy Note: A video clip and partial transcript are available on the website.
