Series VI: Audio, Visual, and Photographic Materials, 1918-2000s
This series comprises cassettes, VHS tapes, and photographs pertaining to Jones'
personal life and literary career. The VHS tapes contain recordings of Jones'
appearances on various documentaries and television shows, primarily relating to
the Beat/Downtown New York literary scene. The cassette tapes primarily consist of
recordings of Jones' radio appearances and interviews, as well as public readings
of her works.
The bulk of this series consists of photographs, which include images of the Cohen
family from the early Twentieth Century, and also a large number of Jones during
college. The largest set of photographs are those of Jones taken during the
Fifties and Sixties in New York City's East Village, and includes photos of her
then-husband LeRoi Jones, her children Kellie and Lisa, and a number of other New
York City writers and artists. Many of the photographs were originally arranged in
scrapbooks, and, when possible, this order has been maintained.
