Both an archive and museum, the Margaret Walker Center is dedicated to the preservation, interpretation, and dissemination of African-American history and culture.
Vision and Goals
Founded by Margaret Walker in 1968, the Center seeks to honor her academic and artistic legacy by expanding and promoting its manuscript holdings and oral history collections, interpreting African-American history and culture through its museum and exhibits, coordinating public programs on campus and throughout the community, preserving historic structures central to the African-American experience, and advocating Black Studies at Jackson State University.
