Black Interiors: Envisioning a Place of Our Own

February 6, 2019

The Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library's Archives Research Center and GLAM Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning proudly present Black Interiors: Envisioning a Place of Our Own, a Black History Month exhibition that showcases archival documents, photographs and memorabilia related to the continuous efforts of those within the African Diaspora to designate and create communities of their own within the United States and abroad. Building upon the 2019 theme of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), “Black Migrations,” this exhibition explores how, along with the physical movement and relocation of a people, came “diverse and stratified interracial and intra-racial urban population amid a changing social milieu.” This included new music forms, the growth of visual literacy, arts, and the exploration of spatial perspectives.

Black Interiors is on view throughout the spring semester in the AUC Woodruff Library's Archives Research Center.
