The bulk of the photographs available at the Duke University Archives are housed in two collections:
Both collections contain photographs of African-American faculty, staff, and students; African-American student organizations; and campus events, like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 1964 visit or the 1969 Allen Building Takeover.
These collections may be requested and reviewed in our reading room, where scanning equipment is available for your use at no charge. Additional fee-based reproduction services are also offered.
Many of the photographs from these two collections have been digitized and made available online as part of our Flickr photostream.
