New Online Resource: The HistoryMakers

The HistoryMakers is the nation’s largest African American video oral history collection, featuring about 2,700 individuals telling their stories in more than 148,000 video clips each running 1-5 minutes long.

The collection's aim is to provide an integrated scholarly and educational resource for exploring African American history and culture. It is unique among collections of African American heritage because of its large and varied scope, with interviewees from across the United States, from a variety of fields, and with memories stretching from the 1890s to the present.
