It’s Black History Month. Need some information for your project?

Falvey has many resources to help you, including encyclopedias focusing on specific aspects of African-American life, such as business, politics, folklore, literature and society. One online source which covers all of these aspects is the Oxford African American Studies Center.  In addition to factual information, you can find primary sources, maps, charts, images including some video clips such as a clip from the movie “Amistad.” Biographical information is plentiful — from Richard Allen, the first bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) in Philadelphia, to Guion Stewart Bluford, Jr., the first African American in space.

(Phillis Wheatley was the first African American woman to have a book published and the second woman to have a book published in the United States.)
