We've got the following new e-resources on trial. Please take a look and send us your feedback, thanks!
Focusing predominantly on Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, New York, and towns and cities in North Carolina, this resource presents multiple aspects of the African American community, through pamphlets, newspapers and periodicals, correspondence, official records, reports and in-depth oral histories. It reveals the prevalent challenges of racism, discrimination and integration, and a unique African American culture and identity.
Explore multiple perspectives on the history of injury, treatment and disease on the front line. Chart scientific advances through hospital records, medical reports and first-hand accounts, and discover the evidence of how war shaped medical practice across the centuries.
Based at Fisk University from 1943-1970, the Race Relations Department and its Annual Institute were set up by the American Missionary Association, to investigate problem areas in race relations, and develop methods for educating communities and preventing conflict. Documenting three pivotal decades in the fight for civil rights, this resource showcases the speeches, reports, surveys and analyses produced by the Department’s staff and Institute participants, including Charles S. Johnson, Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., and Thurgood Marshall.
The trials end November 29th 2017. Please explore and send us your feedback!
