About this collection

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) was founded in 1915 by Carter G. Woodson. Originally known as the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, this organization continues to grow and blossom meeting its official mission "to promote, research, preserve, interpret, and disseminate information about black life, history, and culture to the global community." In 2015, ASALH, the original founders of Black History Month, selected “A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture” as the national theme.  In keeping with the national theme, this collection celebrates Huntsville's African American community by pulling together photographs from the Library's collection.

The Library welcomes any help in identifying people or events.
