African American Experience
(From Home Click Here)
African American Experience database is a digital electronic
resource tool that allows our collection of material on African American
history and culture to rapidly grow.
Its two primary goals mirror the goals of the library collection.
These goals are "to provide rock-solid information from authorities
in the field, and to allow African Americans to speak for themselves
through a wealth of primary sources"
