African American Resources at the American Antiquarian Society

AAS has rich materials pertaining to the African-American experience through Reconstruction as well as much relating to white attitudes towards slavery and black Americans in those periods. The strength of the collections is due to collecting efforts that began when the Society was founded in 1812, and today we continue to collect actively in this area.
