In 1982, Missouri State University's Dr. Katherine Lederer developed the exhibit "Springfield's Lost Black History" about the African American community from in and around Springfield, Missouri. Featuring images from her own collection, as well as materials made available to her by the community, this collection grew to include copies of over 450 photographs, documents, and published pages.
The exhibit collection was scanned in its entirety. Contact the Archives with questions.
