The purchase of preservation and storage supplies to provide better care for the papers of Eugene B. Redmond, an African American poet, historian, photographer, and educator who played an active role in the Black Arts Movement in the 1960s. The collection documents Redmond's relationship with notable figures including Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Miles Davis, Katherine Dunham, and Gwendolyn Brooks.

SIUE's Eugene B. Redmond Collection comprises an extensive record of the activity of hundreds of major and lesser known African American literary and cultural figures from the mid-1960s to the present. Few collections provide such broad and in-depth coverage of contemporary African American writers. Donated in 2007, the material had been kept in damp facilities. NEH funding will support the purchase of preservation and storage supplies for this unique collection.
