This digital collection documents the history of
African-American Ohio. A variety of sources including manuscripts,
serials, images and pamphlets provide an overview
in Ohio between 1850 and 1920 in the
words of the people that lived them. While the documents originate from
Ohio, the archive is a very valuable resource for the study of black
American history in general.
Women's Studies Content
Of the above mentioned collections, three resources
focus specifically on women:
The serials collection includes (2)The African American Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church Review, which contains the column “Women’s Department” and (3)The African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church. Ohio Conference Branch. Woman’s Mite Missionary Society. Minutes/Proceedings of the Annual Conventions. Minutes from the 1903, 1916, 1917, and 1920 conventions are included.
Additionally, there are numerous resources for women's studies throughout the collection. A search for the subject heading "African American women" and the medium "Newspaper" retrieves articles on a wide range of subjects - economic status, employment, politics and government, health, suffrage, and women's clubs. The manuscript collection contains narratives of female former slaves. Photographs include women in both individual and group portraits.
Search by subject heading, document type, keyword, or any
combination. Although the search engine is highly effective at retrieving
documents with one’s keywords, it doesn’t display or indicate which page
the keywords appear; one has to page through the entire document.
