About the Institution
The Amistad Research Center at Tulane University was established in 1966 as a division of the Race Relations Department at Fisk University. By 1969, the Amistad Research Center, now incorporated as an independent, non-profit institution, had become the official repository for the archives of the American Missionary Association, an inter-racial organization that founded hundreds of abolitionist and anti-caste churches and schools among African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, Appalachian Whites and Asian Americans. The Center has been housed on the campus of Tulane University as an independent research center since 1987. Amistad’s holdings include the papers of artists, educators, authors, business leaders, clergy, lawyers, factory workers, farmers, and musicians. The Amistad holds more than 15 million documents, 250,000 photographs, 25,000 books, 2,000 periodicals and 400 original works of art and artifacts dating from the 18th century to the present.
