Welcome to the American Women of African Heritage - Spirit of Women Archive

The American Women of African Heritage - Spirit of Women Archive at Westchester Community College celebrates the achievements of Westchester County’s remarkable African-American women.

Inductees of the American Women of African Heritage (AWAH) Spirit of Women Archive have generously selected and donated items representative of their lives and accomplishments to share with Westchester Community College and the wider public. The images and stories can serve in research and teaching a wide range of topics, from women's issues, racial equality, community activism in addition to the history of Westchester County.

The Harold L. Drimmer Library at Westchester Community College looks forward to continuing this collaboration with AWAH to expand the current digital collection with additional materials from other inductees.
