Afro Newspaper Morgue Collections
The Afro Newspaper Morgue Collections were compiled by Afro employees assigned to the newspaper's "morgue" room. Whenever a story was completed, these employees meticulously filed away the materials related to the story, arranging them by subject matter. These materials often included photographs, many of which ran in the newspaper weekly, and others that did not make it to print. Also included were article clippings related to the designated subject and any other ephemera that could help Afro writers whenever they need supplementary information for stories. Afro Newspaper Morgue Collection database descriptions were developed by graduate students whose archival training and work were completed with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
