The Quincy Troupe papers, dating from 1915 to 2008, mainly document the writer's career from 1970 to 2008. They also hold a small set of family papers and the scrapbooks of Quincy Trouppe, Sr. The collection's strongest points are its documentation of Troupe's writings and other projects, particularly his books on Miles Davis, James Baldwin, and Chris Gardner; The Miles Davis Radio Project; his editorial work for the arts journal Black Renaissance Noir and Code magazine; and his published and unpublished poetry and essays.
The collection contains work produced by Coleman between 1960 and 2013, including manuscripts and drafts of her published poetry and prose, journalism, writing for film and television, and spoken word recordings, as well as many unpublished writings. In addition, there is a wealth of correspondence with major literary figures and institutions, activist materials, and ephemera relating to Coleman's professional and personal life.
