A fantastic step towards making 2Pac’s complete works available to the public has been made today.
The Robert W. Woodruff Library at The Atlanta University Centre is opening the Tupac Amaru Shakur Collection. 2Pac’s music, poems, and other writings, in their entirety will be made available for study. Some of 2Pac’s correspondence including fan mail as well as video and print clippings have been a made part of the new collection. The collection also includes manuscripts from Shakur family, friends, and members of Dramacydal and The Outlawz.
The collection has been committed to scholarly research, but it remains open to the public. To find out how to view the collection for yourself, check out the Woodruff Library site.The opening of the collection marks the completion of a two year project, which was started in 2009 in partnership with the TASF.
“We’re honored to have partnered with the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to preserve the artistic legacy of Tupac Shakur through this collection. He transformed the landscape of hip hop culture and was one of the most compelling voices and talents of his generation. As an academic library, we feel privileged to be the stewards of the Shakur Collection and to promote scholarly research of Shakur’s work.” - Loretta Parham, CEO and Library Director
