Repository code: ams

Repository description (CRHP): Civil rights movement oral histories are a primary focus of ASU's collections.

Repository description (extant): The primary focus of Alabama State University Archives is to identify and acquire, organize and preserve collections, particularly primary source materials that document the history and the internal operations of Alabama State University. The Archives will collect material that sheds light on how the school influenced African Americans in Montgomery, in Alabama, around the southeast, and throughout the nation. It is also the goal of the Archives to develop and catalog a collection that will preserve and make accessible for study, materials relating to the people, aims, strategies, and achievements of the modern civil rights movement, paying particular attention to those areas where civil rights activism intersects the history of Alabama State University, and in those instances where material connects the local movement to wider civil rights initiatives. Finally, the Alabama State University Archives will collect material that reflects the cultural expressions of African Americans in Alabama. However, the Archives will also consider other material that may not clearly match the aforementioned criteria on a case by case basis.

Repository type: University Special Collection

Collections:

ASU oral history collection
