Welcome to the BMRC Color Curtain Processing Project

In 2009, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) awarded a twenty-eight month “Hidden Collections” grant  to the Black Metropolis Research Consortium (BMRC) for our "Color Curtain" Processing Project: Unveiling the Archives of Chicago's Black Metropolis.”  This award enabled the BMRC to process 135 collections of primary source materials related to African American History, create EAD finding aids, and formally introduce undergraduate students to the archival profession.
