Amistad Research Center


Amistad Research Center is committed to collecting, preserving and sharing original materials from the 18th century to the present that reference the social and cultural history of African Americans and other ethnic groups. The primary purpose is to make source materials for rewriting history accessible to researchers and scholars, giving equitable treatment to the contributions of ethnic minorities, particularly African Americans. From stories of people told in their own words, to artistic renderings of American life, to photos of families caught on film during the most and least prosperous of times, Amistad's holdings weave themselves into an invaluable fabric whose threads contain the story of America's ethnic past. Founded in 1966, the center remains a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation governed by an independent board of directors.
