A Digital Archive of the African American Photography Collection of the Institute for Arts & Media

Processing of 551,000 photographs and creation of a digital archive of 19,820 selected images from collections of three prominent photojournalists in the African American Photography Collection.

This project will create a digital archive of 19,820 images from the African American Photography Collection of the Institute for Arts & Media at California State University, Northridge, between May 1, 2013 and April 30, 2016. The collection documents the social, cultural, and political aspects of African American life in post-war Los Angeles and Southern California and in doing so illuminates nationally significant themes such as racial segregation and discrimination, the civil rights movement, African American entertainment and cultural leaders, and major political and cultural events. The project will focus on the work of prominent photojournalists Harry Adams, Charles Williams, and Guy Crowder, whose collections together total 551,000 images. The digital archive will expand access to and use of these images, furthering NEH efforts to bridge cultures within our society.
