This collection documents the individual and collective story of the African American struggle for freedom and human rights in the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. When completed, it will include all the narratives of fugitive and former slaves published in broadsides, pamphlets, or book form in English up to 1920 and many of the biographies of fugitive and former slaves published in English before 1920.

  "In Christ's Stead": Autobiographical Sketches.       The Church in the Southern Black Community
Documenting the American South

This collection traces how Southern African Americans experienced and transformed Protestant Christianity into the central institution of community life. Coverage begins with white churchesí conversion efforts, especially in the post-Revolutionary period, and depicts the tensions and contradictions between the egalitarian potential of evangelical Christianity and the realities of slavery. It focuses, through slave narratives and observations by other African American authors, on how the black community adapted evangelical Christianity, making it a metaphor for freedom, community, and personal survival.

  Founders of Mechanics and Farmers Bank       Hayti
"a city of Negro enterprises" - Booker T. Washington, 1911

Hayti, the African-American section of Durham, North Carolina, flourished from the 1880s to the 1940s. Like Memphis' Beale Street and the area around Atlanta's Sweet Auburn, Hayti was an island of African-American culture and business in a hostile society. This site provides glimpses of that vanished community.

  Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee

On February 1, 1960, a group of black college students from North Carolina A&T University refused to leave a Woolworth's lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina where they had been denied service. This sparked a wave of other sit-ins in college towns across the South. The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, or SNCC (pronounced "snick"), was created on the campus of Shaw University in Raleigh two months later to coordinate these sit-ins, support their leaders, and publicize their activities.
