The African American Home Movie Archive is the only archive solely devoted to the collection, documentation, and study of African American home movies. AAHMA was established in the Spring of 2015 as a home movie registry for African American home movies in various museums, libraries, archives, and private collections throughout the United States. In the spirit of sharing knowledge and promoting access to these home movie collections, www.aahma.org was launched to serve as a liaison for African American home movie research by streamlining access to this material. Since then, AAHMA has grown from a registry to an archive that includes home movies and other media related to African American life, history, and culture. Through its online registry and growing collection, AAHMA aims to promote a broader perspective of African American history and culture by encouraging access, research, and reuse of these films.
