We would like to thank DeLisa Minor Harris, Special Collections Librarian at Fisk University's John Hope and Aurelia E. Franklin Library, for her vital counsel, guidance, and training throughout the creation of this archival digital exhibit.
We also extend our gratitude to those who provided important feedback on the exhibit, including Dean Jessie Carney Smith and Nikoo Paydar. Further recognition goes to Cassondra Hanna for her research on the relationship between Fisk University and the Rosenwald Fund, and to David Joseph-Osawe for his work on metadata. This has truly been a team effort.
Finally, thank you to the Mellon Foundation, to the Mellon Partners in Humanities Education Committee, and to the Center for Digital Humanities at Vanderbilt University, with special thanks to Madeleine Casad, for supporting this project through funding and counsel.
