Researching African American Women's History and Culture in the Rubenstein Library

Fannie B. Rosser

Fannie B. Rosser, Papers 1863-1973

Historically, the stories of African Americans have been suppressed and underrepresented in archival collections and experiences of African American women are, at times, even more so hidden. This guide hightlights material within the holdings of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library ranging from the early days of slavery to the present that document African American women's stories, many of which can be found just underneath the surface.

The Rubenstein Library houses the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture and the John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture; both serve as active collectors of book and manuscript materials related to or created by African American women. Feel free visit these center sites to learn more about their respective collections.

Please contact the staff of the Rubenstein Library if you have any questions about our collections.
