(AAAMC) is a 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

The AAAMC also houses extensive materials related to the documentation of
black radio.

The AAAMC supports the research of scholars, students, and the general

histories, photographs, musical and print manuscripts, audio and video
recordings, educational broadcast programs, and the personal papers of
individuals and organizations concerned with black music."
