Poster Collection

Identifier: POF-01

Scope and Contents

The Auburn Avenue Research Library Poster Collection includes posters and historical reproductions which chronicle many events in African American History. The posters were produced primarily through offset and photomechanical printing methods with some hand done items. Some of the subjects covered are political campaigns, educational items, special events, lectures and plays and theatrical productions. Some feature original artwork or are autographed by prominent African Americans. The poster collection is continually evolving as we acquire new items of interest.


  • Majority of material found within 1920 - 2000
