Though Black History Month is officially over, we are always seeking out “new” research to help us learn about and identify African American ancestors.
As February wound down, I received news about 3 neat new NC databases you might want to check out.
1. Behind the Veil: Documenting African American Life in the Jim Crow South (Duke Digital Collections)
2. Two Great New Resources on African American History (N.C. Department of Cultural Resources)
And, so you don’t think that I only focus on NC records, here is the news from TN, Tennessee State Library and Archives Celebrates Black History Month (new & improved versions of 3 important black history collections) and an Afro American Newspaper project, Project Gado Announces New Collection of Historical Images in Celebration of Black History Month.
If you are aware of other new resources for African-American research, please share.
