The Atlanta University Center (AUC) Robert W. Woodruff Library has opened the Tupac Amaru Shakur Collection on the 15th anniversary of the platinum recording artist, actor and poet's death. The Shakur Collection represents a partnership between the AUC Woodruff Library and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to make available for scholarly research the manuscript writings and other papers of Shakur, who was shot and killed at 25.
Spanning a period from 1969 to 2008, the collection includes song lyrics, poems, track lists and video treatments, as well as manuscripts by Shakur family members and members of the rap groups Dramacydal and the Outlawz. Memorabilia, correspondence to and from Shakur, fan mail, media clippings and publicity materials are also included.
