Title from home page (viewed on 12 Oct. 2015)
Electronic reproduction of material relating to African Americans from the beginning of the 19th century onwards. Focusing primarily on Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, New York and the towns and cities of North Carolina, the collection presents multiple aspects of the African America community through pamphlets, newspapers and periodicals, correspondence, official records and in-depth oral histories. The material reveals the prevalent challenges of racism, discrimination and integration, and provides insight into the uniqueness of African American culture and identity. Also featured is a rich selection of visual material, including photographs, maps and ephemera. It includes a run of the New York periodical, The Messenger, from Aug. 1925 to May/June 1928.
