Avery Research Center

The Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture was established as part of the academic program of the College of Charleston in 1985. The Avery Institue of Afro-American History and Culture is a separate non-profit organization and provides support to the Center’s programs and operations, as well as assisting the Center in acquiring archival collections.

The mission of the Avery Research Center is to collect, preserve, and promote the unique history and culture of the African diaspora, with an emphasis on Charleston, the South Carolina Lowcountry, and beyond.
