This series consists of files extracted from 3.5" and 5.25" floppy disks.
These files include drafts from Beloved, Jazz, Paradise,
Playing in the Dark, Race-ing Justice, Engendering Power, Birth
of a Nation'Hood, and various academic lectures; as well as
administrative databases and correspondence, likely including duplicates
from letterbooks and reports found in Working Files. Disk titles are taken
from original handwritten labels, and may include dates that do not match
the dates derived from the actual files. Description notes for individual
disks contain further notations from longer labels or disk envelopes where
present, or other contextual information. Disk numbers refer to the order in
which disk imaging was attempted. Some disks were unable to be successfully
imaged but may be added if new machines allow them to be imaged
This material is arranged alphabetically by disk titles, or groups of disks
containing the same type of material, such as "Correspondence" and
"Chronological Letters". The disks in groups "DataBase Files, Indexes and
Programs" and "Ronnie's Disks" were maintained as per their original
arrangement, in boxes with those labels.
