South African Research and Archival Project Website Launch
The South African Research and Archival Project (SARAP) is a documentation project that identifies, inventories, and facilitates access to archival collections that demonstrate linkages between Americans and South Africans, principally African Americans, during the anti-apartheid movement.
SARAP, located on the campus of Howard University, in collaboration with the University of Fort Hare in South Africa, is pleased to announce the launching of the SARAP website: http://sarap.howard.edu
To date, SARAP has inventoried the following collections for the website:
African National Congress United Nations Mission Records
African National Congress Washington, D.C. Mission Records
Pan Africanist Congress United Nations Mission Records
Records of the House sub-Committee on Africa in the Charles C. Diggs Papers
Southern Africa Support Project Collection
Southern African References in the American Society of African Culture Collection
NARA United States Economic Files 1945-1973
Each collection can be searched by subject or keyword, and results can be saved or printed by the researcher.
Documents highlighted within these collections include letters, reports, diplomatic communications, pamphlets, newspaper clippings, photographs, and tape recordings. The website includes a wide-range of subject matter to be searched, including educational activities, protests and demonstrations, national and international racial issues, refugees, sanctions, constituency building, and much more.
Please visit our site and pass the link along to colleagues interested in southern Africa, the U.S., and their transnational relationship.
