Atlanta University's Trevor-Arnett Library is one of the world's leading centers for African and African-American research materials. It also houses the famous Slaughter Collection, from which the large majority of material in this collection is taken.
Selected from the tens of thousands of titles available in Atlanta, this microfilm collection is designed to provide colleges and universities with a comprehensive core library of approximately 6,000 titles documenting the past three centuries of the black experience in America and Europe.
Included in the collection are books, pamphlets, speeches, photographs, dissertations, and other valuable papers on many topics. The titles within each section have been arranged by subject to facilitate access. The collection is divided into the following three distinct sections:
A 3-volume guide covers the “United States” section, and a 1-volume guide covers the “South America & the West Indies”/”Slavery in History” sections.
Students, scholars, and historians will find this collection to be a valuable tool to better understand and appreciate the complex history of African-American culture throughout the world.
Individual reels may be purchased from this collection.
