African American Education Archives and History Program

African American Education Archives and History Program AAEAHP serves to preserve the history of the African American education experience in Dallas County so that contemporary society can study the lessons learned through the struggles and triumphs of African American educators, students and the community.

The African American Education Archives and History Program began in February 2002. The mission is to collect and maintain a repository of artifacts, documents, and visual images that record the African American education experience in Dallas County. It is important to preserve this history so that contemporary society can study the lessons learned through the struggles and triumphs of African American educators, students and the community. Components of AAEAHP include: The AFRICAN AMERICAN EDUCATION HALL OF FAME component identifies and recognizes educators and others who have made positive and outstanding contributions to the educational experiences of African Americans in Dallas County. Inductees will be both historical and contemporary figures. Mrs. Bobbie Lang served as the first chair of the event. The ARCHIVES & HISTORY component focuses on collecting artifacts to be included in media presentations, and chronicles the history of the education of African American students and educators who served in Dallas County. CURRICULUM MODULES AND MULTIMEDIA EXHIBITS COMPONENTS are being developed for use in schools and to share with the community. Permanent displays are available for public viewing at the African American Museum. The ORAL HISTORY component seeks to collect the voices of individuals who impacted or were impacted by the Dallas County education experience that breached the walls of ignorance and opened pathways to success. The hope is to preserve the experiences of those who transitioned from segregated schools to desegregated schools to benefit from the lessons learned. The preservation of these profiles allows the lessons learned to be celebrated.

Mission: To collect and maintain a repository of artifacts, documents and visual images that record the African American Education Experiences in Dallas County.

School named for AAEAHP Board Members Charmaine and Robert Price

The Dallas Independent School District has honored two AAEAHP Board Members by naming a school in their honor.

Charmaine Price is a former principal of Harrell Budd Elementary where she served from 1978 to 1993. She previously served in various school and administrative positions in education. Robert Price served as a Dallas ISD Trustee from 1977-1980. He is a retired District Manager from Golden State Mutual Life where he served for several decades in various positions.

FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE AFRICAN AMERICAN EDUCATION ARCHIVES AND HISTORY PROGRAM
This is a short speech by A. Maceo Smith in 1972 after Dallas police officers had shot and killed several unarmed black citizens. It is one of his last speeches and it reflected his ongoing concern for integrating the Dallas Police Department in order to end its perennial abuse of black citizens. Smith had proposed the integration of the DPD as early as 1935, and even then, he had presented the mayor and the DPD statistics from other southern cities showing how the presence of black police officers had reduced crime in black communities and improved police community relations. Sadly, thirty-seven years later he was still trying to get the city council to take action to reform the DPD and to make it more representative of the city's black community.--W. Marvin Dulaney

You can see this original record and more at the African American Museum where this collection is housed. For an appointment to view the collections or to donate a collection, contact Dr. W. Marvin Dulaney at 817.406.8443. The African American Museum is located at 3536 Grand Ave., Dallas 75210.
