Velma A. Walker Gallery

Currently, our gallery now houses the Velma Ann Waller Art Collection. Velma Ann Walker, a proud alumnus of Alabama A&M University, bequeathed a diverse art collection to the State Black Archives to assist in further enhancing its mission. This expansive and prized collection includes works by such renown African American artists as Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, and Benny Andrews, to name a few. The collection can currently be viewed at the State Black Archives.
