At the heart of the Margaret Walker Center’s mission is the preservation of materials related to the history and culture of African Americans. Open for research, the Center’s collections include archival and manuscript collections, Africana book collections, subject files, oral histories, newspaper clippings, and museum artifacts.
The Center is also pleased to announce the launch of the Margaret Walker Personal Papers Digital Archives Project. An ambitious undertaking to digitize approximately 50% of the Margaret Walker collection, the Center has completed the first phase, including the digitization of Walker's personal journals, dating from the 1930s to the 1990s and totaling more than 10,000 handwritten pages.
