Archives & Special Collections
The Archives and Special Collections at Northeastern University Libraries houses and carefully curates a diverse and growing collection of historical records relating to Boston's fight for social justice; preserving the history of Boston's social movements, including civil and political rights, immigrant rights, homelessness, and urban and environmental justice. We focus on the history of Boston's African American, GLBTQ, Latino/a and other communities, as well as Boston's public infrastructure, neighborhoods and natural environments.
The primary source materials we collect and make available are used by community members, students, faculty, scholars, journalists, and other from across the world as the evidence on which histories are built. An understanding of the past can help inspire the next generation of leaders to fight for economic, political, and social rights.
Collections related to Boston's African American heritage include Freedom House, Elma Ina Lewis, United South End Settlements, Martin Gopen, the architectural firm Stull and Lee, and the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts.
The archives are free and open to the public, and we welcome researchers or visitors. For more information or to schedule a visit, please go to: https://library.northeastern.edu/archives-special-collections
