The Archives of African American Music and Culture (AAAMC) is constantly working to develop a variety of public programs that utilize collection resources and invite exploration of topics relevant to African American expressive culture.
Frequently co-sponsored by other institutions or campus units, these educational and cultural programs include concerts, exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and symposia on various African-American musical genres. A representative sampling is listed below.
The AAAMC's general collections include commercially published sound recordings, moving images, photographs, books, and periodicals for research.
The special collections at the AAAMC contain unique materials documenting a wide range of topics and musical genres. Learn more about AAAMC collections through the following categories, or visit our Special Collections page for a list of all collections.
