The Moorland Spingarn Research Center
The Moorland-Spingarn Reading Room hosts scholars from throughout the world. Dr. Jesse E. Moorland, a Howard alumnus and trustee, donated his personal library and collection in 1914 to create the Moorland Foundation, A Library of Negro Life. It was expected that the collection would provide the foundation for the study of Black life throughout the world.
