The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

African American community photograph collection

Repository: Charlotte Mecklenburg Library (Charlotte, N.C.)

Collection Description (Extant): This collection was a bonus that resulted from another project. In 1992, The Library published the "African American Album", The Black Experience in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Area residents brought more than 1500 photographs to the library for possible inclusion in the album. They were photographed and the negatives and contact prints were cataloged to create the African American Collection.

Two hundred of the images from this collection are available in a digital format on a Kodak CD.
