BLACK HISTORY FILES

There are two reasons for this web page:
1. Someone asked me for some "historical African-American" sites and I could not find any.
2. It took me over two months to find this much at the library. I will continue to add stuff as I find it.

If you would like to contribute please email me, FRMRNYR@AOL.COM (Kristina)

If you find links don't work please email to let me know. Thanks!

I'm going through the newspaper and so far Norfolk is the only county to list the marriages separately.
