Celebrating African American History


Our African American history can be celebrated and recognized all year long! There are a number of additional sites on the Internet that can provide significant research and historical information not readily available in libraries and other sources of print media. Following is a sample listing of some of these informative Web sites:


This is the World Book African American Journey site. It chronicles our history beginning with the journey from Africa through the slave trade, the American Revolution, the Reconstruction Era and ending with our struggles throughout the 20th century.


The Frederick Douglass Web site, providing detailed information about Douglass' life and writings, including excerpts from his famous anti-slavery paper, North Star.


An excellent repository of all sorts of information - from our past filled with slavery to topics such as the Tuskegee Airmen, the Black Panthers, Jackie Robinson, etc. There is also special mention of the role on black women throughout our history.


The official Web site of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center in Atlanta, providing a number of artifacts related to Dr. King.
