Description This series is broken into five separate sub-series, all of which center on David C. Driskell's career as an educator, mentor, administrator, and scholar. As a whole the materials in this series convey the role Prof. Driskell played in facilitating the growth of African American art curricula in academia. The two largest sub-series chronicle the time he spent as a faculty member at Fisk University and the University of Maryland, College Park. Together these two sub-series illustrate the significant contributions Prof. Driskell made to these schools' art departments, gallery systems, and campus communities. The remaining three sub-series highlight Prof. Driskell's influence as one of the foremost authorities in the field of African American art. For additional information on what the individual sub-series contain, please consult the sub-series descriptions respectively.
