DPLA Works on Black Women's Suffrage Collection

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) joined forces with five libraries and archives to help with its national Black women’s suffrage collection, announced in November 2019. The Atlanta University Center’s Robert W. Woodruff Library, the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture, Tuskegee University, the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University, and Southern California Library will collaborate with DPLA to digitize archives that showcase “the roles and experiences of Black women in the women’s suffrage movement, as well as Black women’s history of activism, as part of the centennial celebration of the passage of the 19th Amendment.”

According to DPLA, “The collaboration is powered by funding from Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company created by Melinda Gates. Funds will enable the partner institutions to digitize artifacts related to the history of Black women in the suffrage movement, and, more broadly, women’s rights, voting rights and civic activism between the 1850s and the 1960s, in order to make these important collections more widely accessible.”

The collection’s website is scheduled to launch later this summer.
