Learning About African-American History

Every February, students write about the same handful of famous African Americans and the same few events in African American history. To help them move beyond the familiar, below are biographies of hundreds of African Americans whose stories inspire us, and articles on a wide range of events in the civil rights movement. Each article links to a wide array of primary sources about the person or event.
