Follow Friday: Dorothy Martich Black History Photo Archive

16 July 2010

This month's local history blog post is the Dorothy Martich Black History Photo Archive.  Willard Library in Battle Creek, Michigan makes this photo archive accessible through their website.

This photo archive is made possible through local historians, Dorothy and Michael Martich.  There must be hundreds of photo's that focus on the African American community in Battle Creek.  There are pictures of individuals, clubs, churches, schools and more in the archive.

The website says that sometimes you can get more information by contacting the library.  They also appreciate hearing from those who can add information to the photo's, some of the photo's are unidentified.

Check out the historical images in the Martich Photo Archive.
