Black Freedom Struggle from Proquest

Focused on Black Freedom, this website features select primary source documents related to critical people and events in African American history. The 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.

By centering on the experiences and perspectives of African Americans, the hope is that this collection imbues the study of Black history with a deeper understanding of the humanity of people who have pursued the quest for freedom, and the significance of movements like Black Lives Matter.
