Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Photograph Preservation Project

CCAHA is working with LYRASIS, the University of Delaware, and the HBCU Library Alliance on an initiative to improve the preservation of significant photographic collections held within Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). “These collections document the visual and institutional history and legacy of HBCUs and form a core of primary research material for the study of African American history,” said Kate Nevins, Executive Director, LYRASIS.
