Graduation season is upon us and the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library’s GLAM Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning is taking the month of May to celebrate our #AUCgrads past and present!
This month’s featured collection on the GLAM portal highlights images from AUC Woodruff’s Archives Research Center collections and the Spelman College Archives. In addition to photos from the Atlanta University, Morris Brown, and ITC photograph collections, our featured collection also has fantastic images from former Morehouse president Hugh M. Gloster’s photographs collection; ITC’s Isaac R. Clark Memorial Collection and James H. Costen collection, and former Clark College president Vivian Wilson Henderson’s papers.
With images from AUC commencements spanning from around 1900 to 2005, you can find such notable figures at AUC commencements including former Atlanta mayor Maynard Jackson, President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter, James Baldwin, Maya Angelou, and Oprah Winfrey. Most importantly, these images celebrate the achievements of AUC students, past and present.
All commencement season long, we hope that our current 2019 graduates and AUC alumni share their commencement memories with us on Facebook and Twitter at @AUCWoodruffLib and on Instagram at @auc_woodruff using the hashtag #AUCgrads.
