The African Activist Archive website is a growing online archive of historical materials from the African solidarity movement in the United States from 1946-1994. We also include interviews of activists about their experiences and reflections about this important movement that changed the foreign policy of U.S. President Reagan from support of apartheid South Africa to sanctions.
More than 235 organizations from across the U.S. are represented on the website that displays more than 4,700 documents, photographs, posters, buttons, T-shirts, and audio and video recordings.
Please send us an email message if you would like to contribute materials.
|Mission||We seek to document the diversity and breadth of the history of the U.S. movement in support of African struggles against colonialism, apartheid, and social injustice. We also assist activists who wish to donate physical collections to a public library or archive. Several dozen collections have been donated to the Michigan State University Libraries Special Collections, building a valuable resource for researchers.|
