Library of Congress Digitizes Rosa Parks Collection
The Library of Congress has recently digitized its Rosa Parks Collection. This collection contains approximately 7,500 manuscripts and 2,500 photographs related to Rosa Parks’ life, including her letters, family photographs, thank you notes, and even some of her favorite recipes.
While this physical collection has been accessible to the public in the Library of Congress for about a year and a half, it is now accessible online. You can access it here.
If you are interested in the acquisition and preparation of such an extensive collection, the Library of Congress has made a video, which you can watch here.
