Introduction Image of Database African American History

 

"Covering more than 500 years of the African-American experience, African-American History offers a fresh way to explore the full spectrum of African-American history and culture. Users can start their investigation of a topic with a video or slideshow overview, use the key content called out on the home page to find an entryway into the database, or dig deep into a subject or era through the Topic Centers. Read about key figures and events, examine famous speeches and other primary sources, and get context from the in-depth timelines. An important feature is the full cross-searchability across all the Infobase history databases for an even more comprehensive view of history.

Subjects covered include:

    • Abolitionist Movement
    • Underground Railroad
    • Emancipation Proclamation
    • Great Black Migrations
    • Harlem Renaissance
    • Civil Rights Act of 1964

Eras covered include:

    • Africa, Colonization, and the Slave Trade: Beginnings–1819
    • Compromise and Conflict over Slavery: 1820–1860
    • The Civil War and Reconstruction: 1861–1876
    • Segregation, Migration and the Beginnings of Protest: 1877–1928
    • The Great Depression and the New Deal: 1929–1940
