The Amistad Digital Resource for Teaching African American History.
This excerpt from their About page is just a whiff of the stimulating well presented material that is available on this site. I can add that it's a well designed, easy to navigate place, with lots of information and the promise of more to come.
The Amistad Digital Resource provides a much-needed solution to help teachers fulfill this new curricular requirement. It is designed not as a classroom text, but as a unique multimedia resource for secondary school teachers to enhance their knowledge and ability in teaching African-American history. When completed, it will include hundreds of rare and iconic photographs, audio recordings, news clips, and excerpts of oral history interviews with a descriptive narrative text explaining significant themes and key events in African-American history, from slavery to the twenty-first century.Check it out at, http://www.amistadresource.org/
