The core of the manuscript holdings in Archives & Special Collections is built upon the Atlanta University Trevor Arnett Library's Negro Collection. Under the auspices of the Robert W. Woodruff Library, the archival and manuscript holdings continue to develop and expand. The collections document civil rights, race relations, education, literature, visual and performing arts, religion, politics, and social work.
Collections include: the Countee Cullen/Harold Jackman Memorial Collection, and papers of Hoyt Fuller and Wayman Carver that focus on black contributions to literature, music, performing and visual arts; personal papers of scholars C. Eric Lincoln and Walter Rodney, and religious leaders Harry V. Richardson and Edler G. Hawkins; records of civil rights organizations such as the Commission on Interracial Cooperation, Southern Regional Council, and Southern Conference for Human Welfare; files documenting African American education such as the Freedmen's Aid Society, Southern Education Foundation, and United Negro College Fund collections; records of women's organizations such as The Chautauqua Circle and The Moles; and academic professional associations such as the College Language Association, National Organization of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers, and Southern Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel. There are also significant holdings about African Americans in Atlanta and documentation about the Atlanta University Center schools - Atlanta University and Clark College - now Clark Atlanta University, The Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse, Morris Brown, and Spelman Colleges.
