The Tuskegee University Archives has a particularly rich collection of materials related to Civil Rights activities. Throughout the Civil Rights Movement, Tuskegee University played a prominent role in the unfolding of events in America’s history during the twentieth century; the University served as a theater for historical events that had a major impact on America’s development during the Great Depression, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Modern era. Preservation and increased access to the University’s history is essential to the furtherance of the study of American history and Civil Rights history, and especially important is the study of humanities.
Since our website was installed, we have had over 500,000 hits, with approximately 45% of those from abroad. The website (www.tuskegee.edu/ArchivesRepository) has a variety of sections specific to our archives, particularly, finding aids, databases (for collections, media, etc.), digitized photos, documents, audio and visual. There are many items that can be used by teachers from elementary school through college level including, PowerPoint, documents and visual media. We are proud to provide through the website a service to a variety of researchers and teachers.
