African American Heritage Trail, Washington, DC

—934 S Street, NW —

Daniel Alexander Payne Murray (1852-1952) was the second African American to hold a professional position at the Library of Congress, achieving the level of assistant librarian by 1881. One of Murray's responsibilities was to gather a copy of every book and pamphlet written by an African American for the Exhibit of Negro Authorship at the 1900 Paris Exposition. Afterwards these works became the foundation of the Library's Collection of Books by Colored Authors (now integrated into the general and rare books collections). A prolific author himself, Murray often wrote on race issues and testified before the U.S. House of Representatives on Jim Crow laws and the black migration from rural to urban areas.
