The History Keepers Project

May 1, 2017

Join us to hear about the History Keepers Project on Wednesday, May 3 at 5:00pm in the SML International Room, where fifteen Yale students will present summaries of their research into the Black experience at Yale – part of a collaboration between the Yale Library and the Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale.

During this semester, fourteen archivists and librarians* from the Yale Library have been working with the Afro-American Cultural Center to introduce fifteen Black undergraduate students to history research methodologies, library tools and resources, and careers in academia, libraries, and archives. The research focus of the program has been on researching the Black experience at Yale, with each student being mentored by an archivist or librarian. Please join us in celebrating the program. All are welcome!

The History Keepers Program is a collaboration between the Yale Afro-American Cultural Center, the Yale University Library, and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture.
