This research facility, open since 1972 to researchers and scholars by appointment, is a fantastic resource for those studying African American culture and history.

Duke Ellington and Bessie Smith's first recordings are here. Western States Black Research Center also develops workshops in the community with teachers, writers, and other community members.
