Overview The Johns Hopkins University collection of African American history and culture is an artificially assembled collection of printed materials, diaries, photographs, and other items created from 1800 to 1988.
Scope and Contents The material is diverse, including engravings, drawings, posters, and medals, ranging from the 18th to the 20th century. Much of the collection is oriented toward the avant-garde, so even the 18th-century material tends to be literature of the margins. It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).
