The J. Herman Blake and Emily L. Moore Award for Research in Black Panther Party (BPP) related collections provides funding for researchers to explore the Rose Library's holdings related to the organization's founding in 1966, and the impact it had on American race relations, especially the social, economic, and political status of African Americans. Materials related to co-founders Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale, as well as prominent members such as Kathleen and Eldridge Cleaver, and Elaine Brown, are readily accessible. The Rose Library BBP holdings include posters, broadsides, ephemeral materials, photographs, and sound recordings. Stipend up to $500 annually.
The application guidelines and dates for 2019-2020 will be announced soon.
