Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the AAAMC by supporting the mission to acquire, preserve, digitize, and share the rich legacy of African American Music and Culture!

More Info

Established in 1991 by Dr. Portia K. Maultsby, the Archives of African American Music and Culture is a unique repository of materials covering a range of African American musical idioms and cultural expressions from the post-World War II era. Our collections highlight popular, religious, and classical music, with genres ranging from blues and gospel to R&B and contemporary hip hop. The AAAMC also houses extensive materials related to the documentation of Black radio.

Since its inception, AAAMC has become a local, national, and international destination for students, scholars, and the general public seeking primary and secondary source materials illuminating the extensive African American musical continuum. Along with digitization, public outreach initiatives such as our award-winning docuseries, AAAMC Speaks, help to ensure that we bring our collections alive, as AAAMC holdings are accessible to all.

Your donation will help sustain our acquisition, preservation, and programing efforts for another 30 years and beyond!
