Historical Note

This collection, gathered from many sources, is composed of an assortment of material having to do with the history of black Texans. Some of the items in it were donated to the Research Center individually, while others were part of a larger body of donated material to which they bore no direct historical relation. Thus, except for its singular focus on black Americans, this collection is truly miscellaneous.
