In 2004, OFSA entered into an agreement with the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center (MSRC) at Howard University to establish the National African American Roller Skating Archive (NAARSA).
OFSA's role within the partnership is to connect with the community to collect items documenting the participation of African Americans in all aspects of roller skating. OFSA also works to promote the collection and the history captured within, organizing exhibits and producing other works to share the unique rich history revealed.
Moorland Spingarn Research Center (MSRC) is the permanent repository where the collection is maintained and persevered. To learn more about the amazing mission and worked performed at the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center (MRSC) visit https://library.howard.edu/MSRC
