Series 8
Audiovisual materials 1930s-1980s
Boxes AV 1-20 and LP 1

Scope and Content Note

This series of audiovisual materials includes oral history interviews, as well as short films ("Soundies") from the 1930s and 1940s. The interviews are conducted by Delilah Jackson and include a wide range of interviewees, from former Cotton Club dancers to Billie Holiday's first husband. Many of the interviews were conducted over the phone, and some are as short as a few minutes. The interviews are not dated, though most of the interviewees have been identified. Because of significant periods of silence and gaps in the interviews, they could not be placed in any order. The content of the interviews include anecdotes about the entertainers' experiences in Harlem and their reflections on the history of Black entertainment, racism, and life in the 1930s-1950s. There are several boxes of unidentified VHS and cassette tapes recorded by Delilah Jackson. Some are labeled, though the labels are difficult to read and interpret. These tapes may include commercial video or audio clips, though contents have not been verified. Other tapes are completely unlabeled and contents have not been identified.

Arrangement Note

Arranged by type, then in alphabetical order.
