This online guide to African American resources at the CHS is derived from the first thematic printed guide to the CHS’ extensive artifact, manuscript and bibliographic holdings. This guide is available for purchase for $10. Contact Jill Padelford( to place your order.

The online guide is grouped into 7 major sections, each dealing with specific collections areas. There is also an index to the items in our collections accessible from the A-Z menu bar at the top of each page of this guide.

In addition there is a list of illustrations, if you are interested in just seeing images from our collections. More images are constantly being added.
