Knox County Black History Archives

Knox County, Ohio has had a significant black population for several hundred years, and historians and others have documented their activities in journal articles, books, and other printed materials. This remarkable digital collection from the Digital Resource Commons at Kenyon College provides access to photographs, documents, and other items that tell the story of this unique community. This collection was made possible, in part, by funding from the Ohio Humanities Council, along with support from the Rural Life Center. Currently the collection includes 200 items, which visitors can browse alphabetically or by performing a keyword search. Each item has a preview feature and visitors can click through to zoom in on each item. The handwritten history of Mt. Cavalry Baptist Church is particularly fascinating.
