The EBR Digital Collection

As part of the continuing process of establishing the Eugene B. Redmond Collection, faculty and staff at Lovejoy Library recently launched the EBR African American Cultural Life Digital Collection. The site contains more than 250 total items, including 230 photos and 24 posters from the EBR Collection.

A poet and professor, Redmond has been and remains a major cultural historian, amassing a photograph collection of more than 100,000 images, hundreds of books and magazines, and dozens of conference programs and posters over the last four decades. Redmond's materials serve as one of the largest records of African American literary and cultural activity ever assembled by an individual. 

The digital collection provides a glimpse of the holdings in the EBR Collection. This week, as part of our education and ideas festival, we're providing a series of blog entries about the collection highlighting some of our experiences looking through the materials online.
