BlackPast: Remembered and Reclaimed

Professor Quintard Taylor of the University of Washington and his colleagues have created this very fine online resource that covers six centuries of African American history. The site includes an online encyclopedia of hundreds of famous and lesser known figures in African America, along with full text primary documents and major speeches of black activists and leaders from the eighteenth century to the present. Visitors should make sure and visit the "Perspectives on African American History" area, which includes rather fascinating pieces such as "Gentrification, Integration or Displacement?: The Seattle Story" and "Juneteenth: The Birth of an African American Holiday". The site merits numerous return visits, and those with a penchant for African American history, and United States history in general, will find some stellar materials here.
