Many Library of Congress employees have contributed to this project. Lage Carlson, Anne Fuhrman, and Andrew Robb of the Phased Conservation Section of the Conservation Office within the Preservation Directorate conserved the pamphlets. Julio Berrios, Myron Chace, Art Hodge, Bohdan Kantor, Robert Moore, Gaye Pope, and Theodosia Russell; from the Phototoduplication Service prepared the microfilm. In the Rare Book Division, Mark Chello, Jackie Coleburn, Anthony Edwards, Peter Giordano, Mary Lacy, Phoebe Peacock, Colleen Stumbaugh, and Belinda Urquiza, prepared and cataloged the collection; their colleague Rosemary Plakas served as collection curator and provided guidance at various turns in the project. Debra Newman Ham, of the Manuscript Division, was a valuable source of expertise on African-American history, and Ardie Myers, of the Humanities and Social Sciences Division, provided a wealth of bibliographic information. Both Debra Newman Ham and Alfred McEwen, of the Equal Employment Opportunity Complaints Office, graciously consented to narrate sections of the American Memory interactive exhibition that accompanies this collection. Carolyn Brown, Associate Librarian for Cultural Affairs, provided valuable experience-based input. Laverle Berry (Federal Research Division ) drafted the annotations found in the collection's bibliographic records.

In the American Memory office, Joanne Freeman oversaw the preparation of interpretive texts and the interactive exhibit. She was aided by writer-researcher Hugh Gallagher. The catalog records were reprocessed for American Memory by Elaine Woods. Additional assistance was provided by Ricky Erway, Carl Fleischhauer, LeeEllen Friedland, Jonese Hodges, Patricia Miller, Ted Morgan, and Jane Bossert. The project was converted for use on the World Wide Web by Jane Bossert and Glenn Ricci.
