Richard E. Norman and Race Filmmaking: Reprocessing and Digitization

The creation of a comprehensive finding aid and the digitization of 40 linear feet (23,300 items) from the archives of Richard E. Norman, a pioneer in the development of films for African American audiences.

The Black Film Center/Archive (BFC/A) at Indiana University, working in partnership with the Indiana University Libraries, seeks support from the NEH Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Implementation Grant program for the Richard E. Norman and Race Filmmaking: Reprocessing and Digitization project. The project proposes to reintegrate the dispersed holdings of pioneering race film producer and distributor Richard E. Norman; to produce and publish a comprehensive new finding aid to the collection; and to digitize 23,200 unique items in the collection for free public access online.
