Hi -

Very happy to help, for sure!

I dug a bit, and I'm seeing these further collections as being possibly fruitful for your research:

- WSU President William Rea Keast Records (attached):
"Black Studies" materials - largely the early 1970s.

- WSU College of Education Teachers' Corps Records:
Focused on educating underrepresented students and also students from poor backgrounds.

- WSU Photograph Collection:
"Africana Studies"
Subseries 5.45

Let me know if and how I can assist further,

This message was sent with high importance.
Hello,

Thank you so much for your quick response and help. The African American Studies collection does appear that it will be helpful for my research. Besides the African American collection and the David Adamany collections, do you know of any other collections that may have information about the 1989 protest?
I plan on doing research through the 14th of November.

All the Best,
Alexandra Hovey

Good Morning -

One more point to add to the information I'd shared yesterday.

I'm not sure if you'd already accessed the Wayne State African American Studies Records?

I'm attaching the finding aid here.

It may or may not assist you in your research.

Let me know if and how I can further help.

My Best,

Happy to help!

David Adamany's papers currently are not processed.

So - I can look through them to see if we have material relevant to your research in his papers - but it may take some time, as being unprocessed, they are not organized at all.

What your time frame?

An additional idea is to talk with Darrell Dawsey, Associate Director of Community Communications at Wayne State's Office of Communications:
https://wayne.edu/newsroom/contact-us/ .
He's a Wayne State alumni - and was one of the student leaders and activists leading the protest for the creation of an African American Studies Department.

I look forward to talking with you further.

My Best,

Subject: Questions on David Adamany and 1989 Student Protest

Hello,

My name is Alexandra Hovey and I am researching for my History Capstone the 1989 "Study-In" Protests on campus for the creation of an African American Studies Department. I was hoping you knew of some collections that have any documents on the protest. I went to the Reading Room October 18, 2017 and I spoke with one of the workers there and there was some confusion on the David Adamany Collection. Is the collection available or is it restricted? Thank you for your speedy response and any suggestions!

All the Best,
Alexandra Hovey
