Sharon Forks Meeting Room Side B

Archivist Sarah Tanner will present archival resources and artwork that demonstrate the struggles and accomplishments of African Americans past and present. Serving as soldiers, sailors, pilots, veterans, nurses, and civilians, African Americans held various roles in times of war. The story of African Americans during war time is filled with “paradoxes of valor and defeat, of civil rights opportunities and setbacks, of struggles abroad and at home, of artistic creativity and repression, and of catastrophic loss of life and the righteous hope for peace.” This program will discuss how this history is represented in the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library’s Archives Research Center, how to access these materials, where to find digital resources, and the importance of archival material in telling this story.

This program is part of a series on African American history for adults sponsored by the FCPL Friends & Advocates.
