African-American Women: Online Archival Collections
Online Archival Collection, entering this site is like pulling back the cover on an old family album: sepia tone photographs appear on a screen that look like faded parchment. "What I like about this site is it is technically wonderful," Mr. Baker said, "You can access scanned images of original letters from black women in the 19th century. Moreover, you appreciate the nuances and complicated language that was used-even by black people- in the 19th century."

In the mid-1930's, thousands of former slaves were interviewed under the auspices of the Works Progress Administration. This Web site includes text and audio clips from 13 of them.

Afro-American History
While this site may not be as lacquered as some of the others, it highlights interesting links. Click on Black History Month and you will be led to early black communities in Nova Scotia, for example, and by books by black Canadians.

"Whether you are interested in the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry or a historical resource on the Gullah culture, this site can guide you there," Mr. Wilson said.

Gateway To African-American History
Created by the State Department's International Information Programs, this has links to bibliographies, archival and research sites, presidential speeches, and full text versions of government reports, and topics like the Amistad revolt, the civil rights movement and President Clinton's "National Conversation on Race."

A link is also provided to the Association for the study of Afro-American Life and History.
