Duke University’s David M. Rubinstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library has some excellent online archival collections. Today I want to profile African American Women, which contains three digital collections.
The first is called “Elizabeth Johnson Harris: Life Story,” and includes full-text of memoirs and poems/articles written by Harris, a Georgia writer. The second collection is called “Hannah Valentine & Lethe Jackson: Slave Letters,” and the third is “Vilet Lester Letter,” a scanned version of a letter written by Lester in 1857.
While you’re on the Rubinstein website I encourage you to check out their other rich digital collections as well!
