African American and African Studies: Digital Collections

African American History in American Memory

The American Memory collection of the Library of Congress is especially rich in primary documents about the African American experience. They have 17 different collections, including sheet music, slave narratives, broadsides, Frederick Douglass papers, personal narratives from the South, baseball and Jackie Robinson. 

One of the most useful is this collection of African American pamphlets from 1824 to 1909.
