This project is a collaborative effort to develop a web-based exhibition documenting the African American experience at The Johns Hopkins Institutions. The project, focusing on African American contributions and experiences, will enrich the university's history by developing a more complete record of the contributions and value provided by the presence of African Americans at Hopkins, and by providing the Johns Hopkins University community with information that is generally not known. The story will be told using a number of media, including text, photographs, audio files images of documentation and video.

Funding has been provided by the Deans of the University Libraries, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the Diversity Committee of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library. We are grateful for their generous support.  Please view the history of our funding.
