The HistoryMakers

Founded in 1999, the HistoryMakers has always been committed to recording and making accessible the experiences of African Americans. Readers may want to begin with the biographies featured on the home page. At the time of this writing, these included interviews with artists, educators, business people, entertainers, doctors, and other Black Americans who have made an impact in their fields. There are also interesting resources in the Education section, where readers may watch a 4-minute video introduction to the HistoryMakers, or learn about a number of HistoryMakers projects, such as the NSF-sponsored project "ScienceMakers," in which 180 African American scientists were interviewed. It should be noted that readers will need to create a free account on the site in order to access clips of the video biographies, and only those readers who pay the $30 per month fee may access the full array of over 300 biographical interviews on the site. Nevertheless, the written biographies alone are well worth a visit, and they are accessible without sign up or payment.
