Coretta Scott King Archives and History Standing Committee

Charge

Greetings and welcome to the “Archives & History” page of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards Round Table. The Archives and History Committee’s charge is to maintain the historical records of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards. We collaborate with the various Committee Chairs of the CSKBART Executive Board, the ODLOS Office, and the ALA Archivist. Below is a sampling of Coretta Scott King Book Awards material archived by the Archives and History Committee.

1. The official history of the CSK Book Awards with updated milestones posted to our webpage.

2. All historical records: winning titles, historical publications, programs, discussion guides, minutes, acceptance speeches, photos, anniversary activities and various artifacts.

3. We also archive the stories of the CSK Award through our “Ongoing Oral History Project” via video interviews with winning authors and illustrators and CSK Book Award history makers.

If you love history, interviewing, maintaining records, or developing video script and collaborating with a videographer, consider joining the Archive & History Committee of the CSKBART Community.
