Papers of Tupac Shakur Are Donated to the Atlanta University Center

The Robert W. Woodruff Library, which serves the historically black colleges and universities that make up the Atlanta University Center, will receive the papers of Tupac Shakur. The papers were donated by the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, which is directed by the hip-hop artist’s mother. Shakur was shot and killed in 1996 at the age of 25.

The collection includes movie scripts, letters, lyrics, notes, and music video treatments. The papers, which include works from 1989 to 1996, will be available for scholarly research.
