The African Activist Archive Project of the African Studies Center at Michigan State University is working to preserve for history the record of activities of U.S. organizations and individuals that supported African struggles for freedom and had significant collective impact on U.S. policy during the period 1960-1994. This new site includes a series of questionnaires that can be filled out by people who have material or information on the movement. Also, the site has information on the movement including a Directory of African Activist Archives and historical remembrances of those involved. More information will be posted in the future.
