The African-American Mosaic
This powerful resource from the Library of Congress leads visitors through four significant themes in early black American history: the colonization movement, the beginnings of abolition, the Great Migration, and African-American contributions to the Works Progress Administration. The exhibit includes some photos but is primarily text-based.
