Welcome to the Digital Archive of African American Library at the Gregory School. The first library of its kind in Houston and one of the few African American libraries in the country, the African American Library at the Gregory School serves as a resource to preserve, promote, and celebrate the rich history and culture of African Americans in Houston, the surrounding region, and Texas. The digital holdings consist of select curated collections that represent the African American experience in Houston and Texas. These archives include the personal papers of individuals and families, the records of organizations, institutions, businesses and agencies, oral histories and photographs. Among these are strong collections of the Antioch Baptist Church and Jack Yates, businesses, families, churches, and slave narratives.
The Gregory School's archives extend beyond our reading room! To increase access to archival materials during this time, the Gregory School has enabled the "download" feature for collections on our Digital Archives. Customers can now download and save image files using the blue button on each page. These downloads are intended for personal or research use.
