Mission: The Meek-Eaton Black Archives' mission is to collect, preserve, display and disseminate accurate and primary information about African Americans in Florida and people of African descent world-wide, especially the history of their institutions and organizations. As a specialty museum and research center, the Black Archives houses rare and unique historical papers, books and artifacts. The center is constantly engaged in multifaceted public education activities and community service programs, often in conjunction with local, state and national groups. The center also serves as a cultural, educational and informational liaison between the University and its surrounding communities including other universities, educational institutions, cultural centers, businesses and governmental agencies. In 2006, the Black Archives opened a new expansion facility and was officially re-named by the Florida Legislature as the Carrie Meek - James N. Eaton, Sr. Southeastern Regional Black Archives Research Center and Museum. This new facility has allowed the center to attract more visitors, increase its services to the public and enhance its contributions to Florida's tourism. [Library, Archival and Museum Sciences]
