The African American Biographical Database (AABD) brings together in one resource the biographies of thousands of African Americans, many not to be found in any other reference source. These biographical sketches have been carefully assembled from biographical dictionaries and other sources.
This extraordinary collection contains extended narratives of African American activists, business people, former slaves, performing artists, educators, lawyers, physicians, writers, church leaders, homemakers, religious workers, government workers, athletes, farmers, scientists, factory workers, and more--both the famous and the everyday person. Their stories are pivotal to an understanding of the Black American experience over the last two centuries.
Alt-PressWatch is a full text database of the newspapers, magazines and journals of the alternative and independent press. As a current and retrospective collection, Alt-PressWatch provides a valuable new source of coverage, viewpoints and perspectives to complement and challenge the coverage of the mainstream media and serves a broad spectrum of subject areas including the arts, media and popular culture, business and labor studies, education, environmental studies and ecology, global studies, history, journalism, literary and critical studies, political science, government and public policy, social science and more. In an era in which more and more media is owned by fewer and larger corporate conglomerates, the alternative press is one of the last bastions of independent and critical print coverage. Alternative newsweeklies, available in most cities, give readers alternative perspectives on politics, government, policy and culture; report on issues of government and education, local, national and international issues; and cover topics such as hunger, abuse, the environment, religion and the arts.
