Howard University wants the Hare's Archives!
From: Dr. Greg Carr, Chair, Afro American Studies Howard University, Washington DC To: Marvin X, Agent, Community Archives Project
Oakland CA Good Morning Brother Marvin:
Given Brother Hare's centrality in founding the field of Black Studies--and the specific debt that Howard and HBCUs owe the Hares in that and related regards--I can explore the possibility that we can provide a home for the archive. I would like to begin with a space in Afro American Studies, the department that Dr. Hare is most immediately responsible for helping initiate at Howard. I will begin looking into possibilities immediately. Let's talk soon.
Dr. Nathan Hare on Howard University acquiring the Hare papers:
It’s touching, and would be poetic. Beyond the poetry, they did give Stokely Carmichael a Ph.D., though as I recall it was posthumous, but it was a start. I don’t know what they would have in terms of financial might, especially, starting with the Department of Afroamerican Studies. I guess they could hook up with the Moreland Room of the University’s library. The Department of Sociology might add a penny. You’re the poet. I’m a natural born sociologist, a tribe historically accused of worrying too much.
