Black Archives of Mid-America

The Black Archives of Mid-America, located in Kansas City, Missouri, was founded to collect and preserve the cultural history of African-Americans in the Midwest, particularly in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Oklahoma. With funding from the Missouri State Library, the Black Archives have collaborated with the Kansas City Public Library to digitize its collection. Heretofore, the ongoing digitization project has developed a database of more than 800 online images that chronicle the African-American experience. Visitors to this site may browse the archives database by subject area or by material type, which includes photographs, letters, narratives, documents, articles, artifacts, and publications.
