Reference Center with Perspectives on African American and Global African History

The BlackPast provides a global audience with reliable and accurate information on the history of African Americans and of people of African ancestry around the world. The organization promotes greater understanding through this knowledge to generate constructive change in society. The materials include an online encyclopedia; the complete transcript of speeches by African Americans, other people of African ancestry, and those concerned about race, given between 1789 and 2016; full-text primary documents, bibliographies, timelines, and gateway pages with links to digital archive collections, African and African American museums and research centers, genealogical research websites, and other web resources on African American and global African history. Additionally, major African American museums, research centers, and other web resources on Black history are linked to the BlackPast website, as are bibliographies listing major books categorized by author, title, subject, and date of publication. BlackPast’s online magazine, Perspectives, offers commentary on important but little-known events in Black history, often written by the individuals who participated in the events or witnessed them. The compilation and concentration of these diverse resources allows BlackPast to serve as the “Google” of African American history.
