    The idea that the expressive traditions of all local and ethnic cultures should be equally valued was at the heart of musicologist Alan Lomax’s career. His Sound, Photograph and Video collections, which are the legacy of his extensive field research carried out between 1946-1990, can now be accessed online via the Cultural Equity website. Gems include The New Orleans Jazz Interviews (1949), the England and Wales folk songs (1951-1958), blues artist Big Bill Broonzy, Bessie Jones, and Caribbean 1962, just when the British West Indies were on the verge of independence. There are also three YouTube channels: The Alan Lomax Archive, which offers video clips from Lomax’s “American Patchwork” fieldwork (1978-1983), thus far including Mississippi Delta and Hill Country, Appalachia, New Orleans, Cajun Louisiana, Johns Island, SC; The Global Jukebox Channel with 600 recorded language examples collected by Lomax for Parlametrics, his study of speaking style, and the Cultural Equity Channel set up to provide Grenadians at home and in the Diaspora with an interactive online resource for Grenadian folkways and an outlet for cultural feedback.

    Databases

    This database is the result of a project at the University of Hildesheim, Germany to study how interaction between people from different cultures has been portrayed in film and television. The website consists of a list of around 150 films, with brief synopsis and credits and then a selection of scenes which have been analysed according to a prescribed list of criteria, such as ‘affectivity’, ‘formality’ and ‘proxemics (space and distance orientation)'. One of the programmes analysed according to these criteria is the British television sitcom ''Allo ‘Allo!' which looks at the depiction and interaction of German, French and English stereotypes.

    The Moving Image and Recorded Sound (MIRS) Division documents the experiences of peoples of African descent, as they have been captured via audiovisual technology. The collections encompass a variety of formats including motion picture film (released prints and outtakes), video recordings, and music, and spoken arts recordings in several formats. Included in the broad range of audiovisual materials are documentary and dramatic films, principally focusing upon international political, anthropological, religious, and cultural arts themes. A unique collection of public affairs television programmes documents the local concerns of African Americans in communities across the United States. Public service announcements and commercial advertisements are also strongly represented.

    Since 1980 the MIRS has conducted oral history interviews through its Oral History/Video Documentation Programme. These primary source video testimonies are part of one of the nation’s longest-running video oral history programme.

    The collections are held at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Researchers from abroad may access the collection on site having obtained a temporary library card. Increasingly, the Center’s audio-visual holdings are being cataloged in The New York Public Library’s online public access catalogue.
