Black Freedom Struggle in the United States


Proquest developed this website focused on Black Freedom, featuring select primary source documents related to critical people and events in African American history. Their intention is to support a wide range of students, as well independent researchers and anyone interested in learning more about the foundation of ongoing racial injustice in the U.S. – and the fights against it.

In this website, primary source documents are presented from several of the time periods in American History when the river of the Black Freedom Struggle ran more powerfully, while not losing sight of the fierce, often violent opposition that Black people have faced on the road to freedom.
