In the spirit of sharing knowledge and promoting access to African American home movie collections, this website was created to serve as a resource for researchers, amateur film aficionados, teachers, students, archivists, curators, librarians, and anyone else who would like to learn more about these materials. Visitors can search African American home movie collections at various institutions across the United States. The AAHMA Registry aims to serve as a liaison for African American home movie research by streamlining access to these materials. In doing so, AAHMA hopes to promote a broader perspective of African American history and culture by encouraging access, research, and reuse of these films; whether it be personal, educational, or creative.
