Hein Slavery Collection

From the Hein web site:

The crisis revolving around race relations in America and the recent events surrounding this crisis have made the Hein Company rethink the idea of financially profiting from the sale of a collection on slavery. As good corporate citizens, Hein realized that a unique opportunity existed to make a positive impact in our community, in our profession and very possibly in a wider arena. Therefore, the decision was made not to charge for this collection, but to provide Slavery in America and the World free to anyone with an interest in the subject: libraries, institutions, students, researchers, or any other entity within our global community. By doing this, the Hein Company will realize a different form of profit by potentially making a difference during this troubling time.  Read the complete announcement here: Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture, and Law.

An opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 15, marked the debut of “Still Raising Hell: The Art, Activism and Archives of Camille Billops and James V. Hatch,” the new exhibit at Robert W. Woodruff Library (Emory University).

Billops and Hatch were present as attendees explored the exhibit, drawn from items the couple collected over five decades. The Billops-Hatch archives are widely considered to be one of the most important collections of materials related to 20th-century African American theater, art history and African American artists.

The exhibit, which runs through May 14 in the Schatten Gallery, showcases themes related to creativity, social justice and community, art and activism, and the importance of history and memory.
