Collections

 
Inspired by her friend and colleague, Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Mary McLeod Bethune collected and preserved African American women's history. The National Park Service continues to preserve this invaluable archive. Today, the National Archives for Black Women's History remains the only such archive solely dedicated to African American women.
