This week’s #19ForThe19th Challenge from @usnatarchives is celebrating Fierce Female Friendships, like the ones between Lugenia Burns Hope and her friends who formed the Neighborhood Union in Atlanta, which provided aid to needy black families in the city. You can see the Neighborhood Union collection in person at our Archives Research Center and check out the GLAM Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning’s digital exhibit, Black Interiors, which features images from the Neighborhood Union collection: http://glam.auctr.edu/exhibits/show/black-interiors
