Social Justice & Popular Music: Archival Materials

Cuyahoga Community College Common Reading Program 2017-2018: Just Mercy


​Archival Materials

Archival materials are primary sources, meaning that they contain firsthand accounts of events and were created contemporaneous to those events or later recalled by eyewitnesses. Many of the materials in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Library & Archives are unique and can't be found anywhere else! Archival materials are available onsite only at the Library & Archives. Please make an appointment to come in to view them.
