Some notable interviews are those of Rev. Dr. C.T. Vivian, who served on Dr. Martin Luther King’s executive staff under Dr. King’s direct supervision and C.A. Scott, co-founder, editor and publisher of the Atlanta Daily World newspaper. There are also a number of tapes about Women 'N Touch Ministry, which brought women ministers from around the country to deliver guest sermons, including interviews with the Ministry's founder, Rev. Lorraine White.
The AIB collection, along with the other audiovisual materials in the Anacostia Community Museum Archives, is currently being inventoried and cataloged at the item level to provide researchers with more access to these historic materials and free the collection of its status as a "hidden" treasure.
Blogs across the Smithsonian will give an inside look at the Institution’s archival collections and practices during a month long blogathon in celebration of October’s American Archives Month. See additional posts from our other participating blogs, as well as related events and resources, on the Smithsonian’s Archives Month website.
