Summary:
The papers of painter, muralist, and educator Emanuel Martinez measure 7.4 linear feet and date from 1960 to 2015. The collection is comprised of correspondence with Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzalez of the activist group Crusade for Justice; writings that include journal entries, essays about Mexican American youth, education, the artist Rini Templeton, community murals, and a presentation transcript about the sculpture Farm Workers' Altar; printed materials that include a bumper sticker and flyer designed by Martinez, photocopies of a poem and sketch by Martinez, and a book of writings on Mexican and Spanish Americans signed by George Garcia; photographs of Martinez as a child, in portraits, painting, and at events; and a scrapbook documenting the history of murals and Chicano art in Colorado through clippings and one letter of congratulations from former Representative Patricia Schroeder.

There is a 7.0 linear foot unprocessed addition to this collection donated in 2021 that includes documents of encounters with the law from his youth, such as citations for minor crimes. These documents are remarkable in light of the arc of Martinez's career after being recruited by Corky Gonzalez to the Chicano Movement as a troubled young man to today, where he is a respected arts activist with a focus on mural-making with incarcerated youth. There is also correspondence with Chicano Movement figures and project files with a variety of documents related to specific mural projects across the country, correspondence concerning the publication of book title, a scrapbook, printed materials, sound recordings, video recordings, and photographs.

Biographical / Historical:
Emanuel Martinez (1947- ) is a painter, muralist, and educator in Denver, Colorado.

Martinez was born in Denver where he spent a troubled youth until the age of 13. He was introduced to art through his lifelong friend and mentor Bill Longley who recognized Martinez's talent and arranged for an art apprenticeship. Martinez also studied with David A. Siqueiros and Francisco Zuniga, and at Metropolitan State College of Denver. In 1968 he established his studio.

As an artist, Martinez is deeply affected by social and political issues. He has been a member of the Chicano activist group Crusade for Justice and was active in the civil rights movement. In 1968, Martinez completed Farm Workers' Altar, a painted wooden sculpture, for the Catholic mass that was held on the day César Chávez completed a 25-day fast in his continuous struggle for social justice. Martinez also completed Tierra O Muerte for activist Reyes Lopez Tijerina. Other works by Martinez include a mural at Alma Center in Lincoln Park and a commissioned portrait of former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Federico Peña.

Martinez worked as an educator at the Student League of Denver for 12 years. He is also involved with the Emanuel Project, an organization named after Martinez that focuses on improving the lives of at-risk youth. With the organization, Martinez has completed approximately 50 murals with students all over the U.S.

Martinez has won numerous awards including the Latin American Educational Foundation scholarship and Mayor's Award for Excellence in the Arts. He has works in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Museo de las Americas in Denver among others. His work was shown in the seminal exhibition Chicano Art Resistance and Affirmation, as well as many other national and international exhibitions.

Scope and Contents:
The conference was cosponsored by the National Association for the Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, The Office for the Advancement for Public Black Colleges, The College Fund/UNCF, the Anacostia Museum and the Center for African American History and Culture. Funding for the program was made possible in part by a grant from Nissan Motor Corporation, USA.

Mind on Freedon was inspired by research done by Spencer Crew, then Museum director, and Lonnie G. Bunch, then associate director for the National Museum of American History's research, documentation, exhibition and collection project Go Forth and Serve. The conference was designed to examine the relationship African Americans have had with education in the United States, the historical evolution of Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and the importance of these institutions on the life and culture of this nation. The program was held from Thursday, February 1, through Saturday, February 3, 1996, and it included panel discussions and performances.

Scope and Contents:
Annual national observance of African American history month program. The 1999 program was called 'W.E.B. DuBois Symposium: "Souls of Black Folk" in the 21st Century: Implications of Race, Culture, and Pan Africanism in the Global Village'. This program honored one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, the distinguished social historian, scholar, and activist William Edward Burghardt DuBois. DuBois lived during the time period between reconstruction and the modern Civil Rights era. DuBois' work provided new inquiries for both historical and sociological inquiry into African American life and culture; new models for research and study of urban sociology; and new intellectual tools for the sociological analysis of the unique complexities of race and class in the United States. DuBois changed the way scholars and the public viewed the "Negro Problem" and put the African American struggle within the context of racism and colonialism.

Program held February 20, to Saturday, February 21, 2004, in the Carmichael Auditorium, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution. The program commemorated the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and was presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Separate Is Not Equal: Brown v. Board of Education." The Program in African American Culture cosponsored event with the Howard University School of Law and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense Fund, Incorporated. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) presented Race and Rights on Friday. Program included panel discussions, performances, and a video screening.

The Program in African American Culture holds an annual national observance of African American history month in February. The 2004 conference commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954. The Brown decision legally ended the practice of segregated education in the United States. The program highlighted the lawyers that worked on the case and its legacy. It was emphasized throughout the program that much work remained to be done in fulfilling the promise of Brown. Several scholars convened to present papers about the case. There was a video screening of The Road to Brown, which highlighted the life of Charles Hamilton Houston, a civil rights lawyer and key figure in the case. Howard University School of Law hosted a town hall meeting in which there was an intergenerational discussion about Brown and the problems that still exist in education today.
