The Obsidian Collection will be today’s modern Griot of African-American stories.

As beings evolved to communicate through language and storytelling, our human culture couldn’t exist without our capacity to share stories.  Some would even say that our individual identity is nothing more than a story we tell ourselves about ourselves.

The Obsidian Collection is a user-friendly, virtual portal for African American culture providing access to material of historical, artistic and cultural significance gathered from around the country,]

These collections are made available through license agreements which  make available, in some cases for the first time, historically significant newspapers, research papers, and magazines, The Obsidian Collection cultivates exclusive relationships with member archives, and grants access to the digital collections of publications that have been in danger of being lost forever.

The organization is responding to the consistent demand of accurate African American history captured by our ancestors in the many African American newspaper archives around the country. We are preserving and making it possible to share this and other similar culturally important resources through the Obsidian Collection web portal.
