African American History Research at Vassar

In celebration of Black History month this February, we’re highlighting a few great sources for the study of African American history in Vassar Libraries’ collections.

 center First, a moment from Vassar History: The Urban Center for Black Studies, located in Poughkeepsie, housed the first black studies program at Vassar in 1969. Contact Vassar’s Archives and Special Collections Library if you are interested in learning more about African American history at Vassar.

The library also has a rich collection of African American newspapers and periodicals and there are many research treasures that remain available only on microfilm.

Always remember that you can Ask a Librarian for help with these materials or with any other research you are doing!
