Anna Julia Cooper Collection

Screenshot
Anna Julia Cooper was a scholar, educator, and author. Born into slavery in 1858, Cooper went on to earn a Ph.D. in History at the University of Paris-Sorbonne and served as the principal of Washington, D.C.'s M Street High School for several years. On Howard University's Digital Howard page, visitors can explore a number of archival materials related to Cooper, including personal correspondence, photographs, and unpublished writings. For visitors less familiar with Cooper, perhaps a good place to start exploring this collection is the Biographical Data section. Here, visitors will find a biographical sketch of Cooper that was published in a 1930 edition of the Parent-Teacher Journal; 1921 job application penned by Cooper; and a short handwritten autobiography, among other items. Other highlights of this collection include manuscripts of Cooper's public addresses; Cooper's poetry, and correspondence with a range of individuals, including W.E.B. DuBois and the editor of The Atlantic. In addition, this collection includes archival material relating to the Grimke family - Cooper was close friends with Charlotte Forten Grimke.
