From ColorsNW.com:

A two-year project to assemble a digital online collection that will capture the rich cultural history and educational legacy of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) was recently launched to promotes access to previously unknown artifacts that have helped to preserve the cultural heritage of these institutions that were founded in the midst of struggle with a special mission to education former slaves and free Blacks.

This unique collection of more than 7,000 images exemplifies the HBCUs as cultural, social and political institutions that have contributed to the historic legacy in the education of Black Americans from the early 1800s until today. The project aims to foster research and teaching opportunities for scholars and professors in the fields of African American Studies, the American South, American Democracy, cultural pluralism and other related academic disciplines.

The project is the first collaborative effort of the HBCU Library Alliance, which includes 89 four-year and 14 two-year institutions in 22 states.
