The Joseph D. Warren papers document African American involvement in Massachusetts politics between 1980 and 1990 and in Michael S. Dukakis' 1988 Presidential campaign. A majority of the collection contains correspondence, news clippings, and reports that Warren collected and organized for a book, which he tentatively titled Assessing the Approaches and Effectiveness of Organizing the Black Community.
