Archives & museum dedicated to the history & culture of African Americans in the SC Lowcountry

Once a hub for the African American community in Charleston, the Avery Research Center offered its students training for professional careers and leadership roles from 1865-1954. Today Avery is an archives and museum dedicated to the collection, preservation and documentation of the history and culture of African Americans in Charleston and the South Carolina lowcountry. The center currently holds nearly 4000 primary- and secondary-source materials that document the history, traditions, legacies, and influence of African Americans and their place in the American narrative.
