This past fall, Associate Professor of Black American Studies and Art History Julie McGee led a course titled Curating Hidden Collections and the Black Archive. Students worked with a set of 53-photographs known as “The Baltimore Collection,” which was donated to the University of Delaware by Neil, Reba, and Jessica Porter in 2001. Much of the student’s research can now be viewed online. This website features digitized photographs from the collection, associated metadata, as well as student essays based on their individual research and thoughts around the collection. According to the website, “the collaborative endeavor has and will continue to engage librarians, curators, faculty, and guest scholars, in the responsibility for the afterlife of this collection, the individuals portrayed therein and the potential of this archive to inform and enhance our world and that of others.”
