I Got a Story to Tell: Black Voices in Print

This guide is a companion to "I Got a Story to Tell: Black Voices in Print," the April 4, 2022 event showcasing Black print culture in the collections of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

The John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture in the Rubenstein Library is celebrating 25 years of promoting and advancing scholarship on the history and culture of Africa and the people of the African Diaspora in the Americas. This event featured a sample of the Center's collections, and participants were able to browse rare print and book collections, chat with curators about the collections, and explore Black primary source material that spans a variety of topics. 

Each section of this guide lists the items displayed on tables in Rubenstein Library's Gothic Reading Room during the event.

The Black Lives in Archives Committee planned this event and selected items for display:

Liz Adams, Kate Collins, John Gartrell, Rachel Ingold, Leah Kerr, Evan Lewis, Heather Martin, Lucy Vanderkemp, Orlionese Yarborough
