The manuscript collections provide important insight into the growth and development of African American families, organizations, and institutions. AARL's Archives Division collects, preserves and provides access to rare, unique and primary materials concerning people across the African diaspora, with a concentration on Atlanta's history. The rare book collection encompasses unique historical and literary texts that date from the 18th century through the 20th century. Researchers have access to sources related to slavery and anti-slavery issues in the U.S. and Caribbean as well as biography, history, literature and religion that document UGRR activity, particularly in Georgia.
