The Black Past: Remembered and Reclaimed
Welcome to BlackPast.org. This 13,000 page reference center is dedicated to providing information to the general public on African American history and on the history of the more than one billion people of African ancestry around the world.
The website is divided into three main areas: African American History (AAH), African American History in the West (AAW), and Global African History (GAH). Under each of those headings you will find a vast array of resources. Under African American History for example we invite you to view our encyclopedia entries, full text primary documents, and major speeches of black activists and leaders from the 18th Century to the present as well as other public figures who debated the question of African American liberty. There are also historical timelines, a list of major newspapers, magazines, and journals, and research guides and websites.
