Digital Collections

Greensboro community history site added

Material digitized as part of UNCG's partnership with the Hayes-Taylor YMCA Youth Achievers program is now online!

Over the past year, we have been working with students in the Hayes-Taylor program and with community members to uncover rare and personal items that are of unique historical value and that might not have made their way into a digital collection otherwise. We encouraged community members to contribute items that they thought were significant and documented a particular aspect of Greensboro's history with specific attention given to African-American communities in the southeastern quadrant of the city.

Greensboro residents brought in some amazing items. Here is a small sample:

We will be spotlighting additional items from this amazing project here and on our Facebook page in the coming weeks. The project was completed using funds from a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services Sparks! Ignition Grant.
