Professor Julie McGee, associate professor of Africana Studies and Art History, developed an interdisciplinary seminar course centered around a box of forgotten photos donated to the University of Delaware by art history alumna, Jessica Porter. The course, “Curating Hidden Collections and the Black Archive,” included 11 students from Africana Studies, History, Museum Studies, Art History and the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture.

The photographs of African Americans in the late 19th and early 20th century in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C., now known as the “Baltimore Collection,” proved to be an invaluable resource for McGee and her students. The facinationg story of how Professor McGee and her students helped to preserve history and tell the story of marginalized people is detailed in an artice written by Beth Miller: "The Baltimore Collection," in The University of Delaware Research Magazine, Vol. 8, No. 1.
