Repository description (extant): Denver's Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, the only library of its kind between Detroit and Oakland, will serve as an educational and cultural resource for the people of Denver, Colorado, and the world, focusing on the history, literature, art, music, religion, and politics of African Americans in Colorado and throughout the Rocky Mountain West. Exhibits will highlight areas such as the historic Five Points neighborhood, African Americans in early Denver (including the city's earliest arrivals), the Black West, African American leadership (the Mayor's Office and other distinguished mayors of Denver) and a
gallery of temporary exhibits. The Blair-Caldwell AARL will offer full, traditional library services and will be housed in a newly constructed, three-story, wheelchair-accessible, 40,000 square foot building.

[. . .] The archival repository of the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library houses more than 150 collections that come from an array of sources. The paper, audio, and visual materials include manuscripts, photographs, organizational records, broadsides, oral histories, and scrapbooks.
