This is a collection of images of the Avery Research Center's artifact collections. The collections consist of an array of objects, from slave shackles to artwork by contemporary African-American artists. The largest of Avery's artifact collections is the Joseph A. Towles Collection, donated by the famous anthropologist Colin Turnbull, who studied extensively in the Ituri forest of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In addition to African artifacts, this collection also contains objects from Turnbull's and Towles' trips to China and India.
