BACKGROUND

Allen Ballard, a Philadelphia native, born in 1930 to Robert and Olive Ballard, is a prominent scholar of African American social and political life, particularly in the area of migration studies. In 1949, along with Stanley L. Jackson, Ballard became one of the first African American students to enroll at Kenyon College in Ohio. While in undergrad he participated in several social and extracurricular activities on campus; however, he was not allowed to join fraternal organizations. As the racial climate on campus caused much stress and anxiety, Ballard remained committed to academic excellence.

Following his undergraduate studies at Kenyon College he enrolled at the University of Bordeaux on a Fulbright Fellowship while he was stationed in the United States Army. Upon his return to the U.S. he entered Harvard University ultimately earning him a Ph.D. in Government.

He has taught at a number of universities including Boston University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, and the City University of New York. While at CUNY Ballard became the Assistant Dean of Liberal Arts heading the program for open enrollment of African American Students. Currently, he is Professor Emeritus at the university.

Ballard’s publications include The education of Black folk: the Afro-American struggle for knowledge in white America (1973), One More Day’s Journey: The Story of a Family and a People (1984), and Breaching Jericho's wall: a twentieth-century African American life (2011). His first novel Where I’m Bound was published in 2000. His other writings and articles have appeared in scholarly and popular publications, including the New York Times magazine.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

This collection consists of a variety of documents including correspondence, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, notes, manuscripts, journal entries, photographs, and audio tape recordings. Most of the material in the collection is photocopied research material collected by Ballard while researching and writing his second book, One More Day’s Journey. This research covers topics such as African American migration history from the South to the North, population and demographic trends, social and economic conditions in urban areas (Philadelphia), and politics. As most of the documents concern the book, including the correspondence written to and from other academics, family and friends, this collection is rich in documenting important issues regarding African American social and political history from the mid-1800s to 20th century.
