Subjects discussed include: Black American culture, Black towns and land ownership, integration and public life, the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the makings of modern music, public health and medical workers, poetry, Black theological traditions and religious life, feminism, migration and the Black diaspora, African survivals and the Gullah people, the Black radical tradition, Black entrepreneurs, funeral rites, Black film and filmmakers, and LGBTQ stories.
Lehman College has secured a trial archive account during 2020.
