Trial of Black Abolitionist Papers

We are pleased to offer a trial of Black Abolitionist Papers, a primary source collection that comprehensively details the extensive work of African Americans to abolish slavery in the United States prior to the Civil War. Covering the period 1830-1865, the collection presents the  international impact of African American activism against slavery in the writings and publications of the activists themselves. The approximately 15,000 articles, documents, correspondence, proceedings, manuscripts, and literary works of almost 300 Black abolitionists show the full range of their activities in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, France and Germany.

We are also conducting a trial of the Black Studies Center, a cross-searchable gateway to Black Studies including scholarly essays, recent periodicals, historical newspaper articles, reference books, and much more.

Our trial is available through December 14th. Please send questions and trial feedback to Erin Gallagher, Director of Collection Services.
