The Amy T. Billingsley HBCU Summer Internship
The HistoryMakers is pleased to announce The Amy T. Billingsley HBCU Summer Internship, in honor of the Washington, D.C./Mid-Atlantic Regional Coordinator of The HistoryMakers. Amy Billingsley has been a vital asset to The HistoryMakers’ mission. She believes passionately in the value of education, especially the hard lessons learned from the experiences of our forefathers. She has long been a staunch supporter of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), especially as they serve as a vehicle to transmit and enhance African American culture and history. Ms. Billingsley has observed the special opportunities afforded by HBCUs for the development of leadership, history, fellowship and culture. She has been an integral part of the HBCU community at Howard University where her husband was Vice President for Academic Affairs (1970-1974); at Morgan State University as First Lady (1975-1984), as a Program Manager at the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO, the association of Black College Presidents), and as a Manager at the White House Initiative on HBCUs. She watched her daughters blossom at Talladega College, Spelman College and Howard University.

The purpose of The Amy T. Billingsley HBCU Summer Internship is to expose undergraduate students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to opportunities in the fields of public history, oral history, African American studies, archival and library sciences. This Summer Internship is open to any interested student in his or her junior or senior year at a four-year historically black college or university. Relevant majors include history, African American studies, archival or library sciences, or a humanities related field. See further application eligibility and guidelines below.

The HistoryMakers is a dynamic 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating the nation’s largest African American video oral history collection, an unprecedented national video oral history archival institution recording the stories of both well-known and unsung African American HistoryMakers. The goal is to develop an archive of at least 5,000 interviews and share this material with the public through strategic media, technology, academic and community partnerships. In June 2014, the nation’s foremost repository—the Library of Congress—announced that it will serve as the permanent repository of The HistoryMakers collection. Now, fifty institutions have licensed The HistoryMakers Digital Archive for use on their campuses, and in the classroom, including Howard University, Savannah State University, Texas Southern University, and Johnson C. Smith University.
