About the Black Architects Archive

The Black Architects Archive is supported by grants and funding from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts; Northeastern University's College of Arts, Media, and Design and the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks; and the Princeton University School of Architecture. The project was initiated and is currently managed by the Data Humanism by Design (DHxD) Research Group.
