The City University of New York Dominican Studies Institute has created First Blacks in the Americas: "the first digital bilingual platform devoted to disseminating the history of the early inhabitants of black-African ancestry of today's Dominican Republic, then a Spanish colony named La Espanola." This website, which is structured like an interactive, multimedia textbook, includes short essays accompanied by full citations for those interested in conducting further research, primary documents, maps, graphs, videos, and more. Topics addressed include the arrival of blacks in La Espanola, the history of black women in La Espanola, and resistance to slavery. Visitors may browse this resource by topic or by type of material in the resource section. In addition, the resources section includes a helpful timeline and a glossary of vocabulary featured in archival manuscripts.
