In response to Black Lives Matter and anti-racism movements in spring 2020, the Schlesinger Library began a new project to highlight Black women's voices from within the library's collections. This project became Hear Black Women's Voices
, sharing curated audio and video clips, photographs, and other materials and is updated on a regular basis.
A companion research guide, also titled "Hear Black Women’s Voices,"
presents those posts along with additional items from the Schlesinger Library and resources beyond Harvard University, and is intended to be a resource for students, researchers, and activists seeking to study and learn from African American women leaders.
