Preserving Black History in the Archives: The Legacy and Future of Rose Library’s African American Collections

Our friends at Emory University's Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Books Library invite you to join them for their second Black History Month virtual event where you'll be introduced to their new curator of African American collections, Clint Fluker.

“Preserving Black History in the Archives: The Legacy and Future of Rose Library’s African American Collections” will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021, at 4 p.m. This online event will celebrate Black History Month, the growth of the Rose Library’s African American collections into one of the premier collections of its kind, and the future plans for the archive.

Guest speakers will include Fluker; Valerie Babb, Emory’s Andrew Mellon Professor of Humanities in African American Studies and English; Carol Henderson, Emory’s Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, Chief Diversity Officer, and adviser to the University President; and Christell Roach, a poet and 2019 graduate of Emory University. Crystal Edmonson, Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast editor, an Emory alumna, and an Emory Board of Trustees member, will moderate the conversation.

Please note: this is a virtual event and not being held at a physical location.
