A History of the Interdenominational Theological Center

The Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) is a Christian Afrocentric ecumenical consortium of seminaries and fellowships that educates students who commit to practicing justice and peace through a liberating and transforming spirituality to become leaders in the church and local/global communities.  Located on ten acres in the heart of the Atlanta University Center, the ITC has a rich history in educating African-American ministers and theologians dating back to the end of the Civil War.

This exhibit was made possible through Spreading the Word: Expanding Access to African American Religious Archival Collections at the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for Humanities, is a collaborative project between the Archives Research Center and the Digital Services Unit of the AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library. The project has prepared for access fourteen collections of rare materials on African American religion spanning from the late 19th century to early 20th century, and from the 1950s to 2000s. The reformatting of audio and visual materials previously underutilized or inaccessible is a major component of this project. The digitized collections are available for access on Digital Commons. Further explore the collections by following the project blog and LibGuide.
