The Amistad Research Center is a community-based, independent archive that collects, preserves, and makes accessible materials related to the long history of slavery, Civil Rights, and race relations. In addition, the center holds collections documenting the contributions of many other underrepresented groups to the South and the United States more broadly. Since 1978, the National Endowment for the Humanities has supported preservation and exhibition development at the center. Two challenge grants, which helped raise an additional $1.74 million in non-federal funds, have contributed to the center’s work by establishing an endowment for staff positions and research funding.
