    The Meek-Eaton Black Archives (MEBA) through its founder, the late Dr. James N. Eaton has been trailblazing the effort to collect and preserve the stories and material of the Black experience since 1971.  These materials range from Florida A&M University history to information on Blacks all over the Southeast United States, long before there was a national museum. In doing so, the facility has advance and over exceeded itself in collections, however the capacity, infrastructure, and technology has long been neglected.  In partnership with the Smithsonian, MEBA is now on the verge of building on the works of Dr. Eaton and making its holdings digitally accessible, while expanding its historical exhibits for public viewing in new and exciting ways.  Your donations will support the efforts of the Meek-Eaton Black Archives in becoming a global destination for students, alumni, faculty, tourist, and the general public.  This push will realize the dream of its founder that "African American History is the History of America," and provide work learning experience for students in the field of cultural arts, museum and archival studies, and digital humanities, thus creating alternative non-traditional career tracks for FAMU students.
