Description
Folder with documents from an architecture workshop at Tuskegee University. The cover of the folder has a central image of unidentified students working at drafting tables. There are architectural drawings and building images in the background. Printed black text above the image reads [CENTER FOR AFRO-AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE / Tuskegee, Alabama / Planning Workshop #4 / January 17-18, 1980 / Tuskegee Institute, Alabama]. At the bottom there is text for [Sponsored By: / Department of Architecture, Tuskegee Institute and the National Endowment of the Arts – A Federal Agency.] The back of the folder has an image of uniformed men outside of a columned building identified as [NEGRO BUILDING].
Inside the folder are three (3) packets of paper, each stapled together. The first packet, titled “Final Workshop,” discusses the proposed creation of a National Resource Center on Afro-American Architecture. There is a workshop schedule on the last page. The other two (2) packets discuss workshop abstracts and speakers, the first on “History, Tradition and Directions of African American Architecture” and the second on “Afro-American Environmental Arts: Relationships and Research.” The packets have black printed text on white paper and the reverse of each page is blank.
