African American Mosaic
A Library of Congress resource guide for the study of Black history and culture.

This is a wonderful and comprehensive resource for educators who wish to teach African American History

This is not a fancy site and the (important and useful) graphics for each section can take time to load.

This site is well organized into chapters along the timeline of African American History.

This is an exhibit produced by the Library of Congress, and is a very thorough and useful essay on African American History. There is introductory text explaining the contents of this site, and other chapters and sub-chapters such as Colonization, Abolition, Migration, and Work Projects Administration. The site is packed with both low and high resolution scans of historical documents in each area. This is a comprehensive site that relates African American history with a manageable chunk of data that teachers will find very useful.
