Much of the collection consists of correspondence, essays, poetry, newsletters, press releases, news articles, meeting minutes, publications, event flyers and promotional material, career pamphlets, invoices, brochures, notes and agendas all relating to these two student organizations, college administrators and the campus community, as well as African American student organizations at other colleges within the New England area and beyond. Materials of note reflect on-campus efforts to encourage civil rights advocacy, outreach and awareness, and the cultivation of a strong and united African American community at Williams College.
