Abstract:

The Green Family Papers document the lives of Barbara-Marie Green and her mother Mae Green.

The sub-group Barbara-Marie Green Papers (1952-1998, 5 boxes) contain letters received, financial records, work records, printed material, awards, artifacts, creative works, memorabilia, photographs and scrapbooks. The majority of the letters received (1952-1998, 2 folders) are to Ms. Green from people congratulating her on her achievements as an educator, editor, publisher and author, and inviting her to speak at their event. The financial record (1960, 1 folder) contains a receipt for the deposit on her first house.

The Work Records (1980-1997, 1 box) are articles Ms. Green wrote for the New York Voice and a variety of newspapers in Virginia. The printed material (1940's-1990's, 3 folders), the largest series in the papers, contains newspaper articles, programs, and brochures from events that honor and or involve Ms. Green; programs from churches in Queens and Virginia; her two books, Dreams and Memories and "Spirit" Poetry. The memorabilia series (1943, 1970-1994, 2 folders) contains an inspirational message from her mother. The series also contains her business cards, identifications, and a pin from her alma mater Hunter College. The Photographs (1980's-1990's, 2 folders) are of her, her mother, her friends and her house in Virginia.

The Scrapbooks(1962-1970, 2 books) were compiled by Ms. Green. The first was done in 1968 and covers the last days of Martin Luther King Jr., his assassination, and the days proceeding the assassination. The second scrapbook, 1962-1970, contains news clippings about her and letters she received.

The Mae Green sub-group (1930's, 1944, 2 folders) contains letters sent and received and printed material. The letters sent and received (1944, 1 folder) document Mae Green's efforts as president of the PTA. One letter is from W.C. Handy the famous blues musician. In it, he talks of his book, Unsung Americans Sung. The printed material series (1930's, 1 folder) document Mae Green's active membership in the PTA and her concern for African-Americans in NYC.
