African American cultural collections and museums: Archiving and preserving Black history

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) recently published a bibliography of resources that focus on the documentation and preservation of African American Collections. The author, Karla Y. Davis (davisk@stolaf.edu) from St. Olaf College wrote:

This article profiles African American collections held at libraries, both public and academic, museums, and cultural organizations dedicated to preserving Black history.

The article includes links to over 30 resources for students of the African American experience. Please be sure to check-out a few of the related resources Gleeson Library has to offer as well.

Are there are other AAS resources you thing should be mentioned (e.g San Francisco’s Museum of the Aftican Diaspora – MoAD)? Does one of the resources really stand out to you? Please post your thoughts in the comments section below.
