The purpose of this library guide is to compile and highlight the archival materials in our Archives & Special Collections that relate to African American history and culture in Pittsburgh. Each of the category tabs contains information on collections with links to their online finding aids and in some cases, digitized materials.
If you have any questions about these collections please contact us via the links in the box below.
The University of Pittsburgh Library System's Archives & Special Collections is one of western Pennsylvania's largest repositories for manuscripts, rare books, photographs, microfilm, maps, audio visual materials, and more.
Search both digitized material as well as finding aids for all of the ULS archival and manuscript holdings. A separate search on finding aids will provide you with background information and an inventory of the records found within our archival and manuscript collections.
