The Encyclopaedia Britannica Guide to Black History

Encyclopedia Britannica's online guide to African American History is arranged as a timeline, split into 5 sections, and covers the years 1619-1997. Each section is further divided into two general subsections: topic and biography. Topics include slavery and politics, civil rights and politics, arts and entertainment, and religion, among others. The strength of the site is the number of entries, and the hypertext connections between them. However, the alphabetical rather than chronological arrangement of entries under each major time category is a serious limitation for those wishing to understand African American History as a continuum. The site also lacks a search engine.
