Some sites you should bookmark by Elna L. Saxton and Jo McClamroch
This piece began with a focus on education-related and other scholarly sites. Since African American Studies (or Black Studies or Afro-American Studies) has been an established academic discipline at dozens of institutions since the late 1960s, we were confident we would quickly be overrun with quality sites. It soon became apparent that there are many quality sites, and that to focus only on academic sites was too narrow for this article. Our resource list, therefore, expanded beyond academia into a total of five categories: Getting started, Educational sites/research centers, Organizations/associations, Afrocen-tric sites, and E-journals/news services. We do deliberately highlight more African American than Africana sites. At the same time, we do not suggest that we could capture the essence of or exhaust the number of potentially valuable sites for any culture's links, be it African American, Asian American, Native American, or any ethnic group. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, the Internet is a mother lode of information for cultural information. Librarians know that the quality of information on the Internet is problematic. We used several criteria: scope of coverage (depth and breadth), relevancy of links, logic of organization, currency, comparison to similar sites, and aesthetic appeal with limited commercial overtones. We evaluated at least ten and up to thirty sites in each of our categories before deciding on our final recommendations. We would emphasize that no cultural group should be seen in monolithic terms and we have attempted to include sites that represent views along the political and ideological spectra. We also tried to avoid an emphasis on any particular geographic region or historical period.

African-American studies as a field faces other obstacles as well, including critics who question the legitimacy of its scholarship.
De Russy also criticized African-American studies departments for having an anti-Western ideological bias. SUNY professors are now calling for her removal.

    15. Been Here So Long
    Mark Krasovic, a graduate student in the American studies Program at Michigan intriguingpicture of 19th century life in the africanamerican community emerges
    An Introduction to the American Slave Narratives Yes Lawd! I have been here so long I ain't forgot nothin'. I can remember things way back. I can remember things happening when I was four years old. Things that happen now I can't remember so well. Bit I can remember things that happened way back yonder. Matilda Hatchett
    Journalists and other writers employed by the Federal Writers Project, part of the New Deal's Works Progress Administration (WPA), gathered the American Slave Narratives during 1936-1938. Over 2,000 interviews with ex-slaves were collected during these years of the Great Depression and eventually compiled by George P. Rawick in The American Slave: A Composite Autobiography, While the narratives concern the personal experiences of African Americans during slavery and after emancipation, the project itself was a product of the 1930s, and should be understood in this light. Mark Krasovic , a graduate student in the American Studies Program at Michigan State University, has contributed the following essay, which considers the ex-slave interviews of the Federal Writers' Project and the construction of folk identity in Depression-era America: The Ex-Slave Interviews in the Depression Cultural Context The New Deal Network has selected seventeen of these narratives to provide teachers and students with a useful sample of the kind of work undertaken by the Federal Writer's Project. As a part of a larger effort (The American Folklore Project) to gather life histories from Americans of all ethnic affiliations, the life histories of the ex-slaves reproduced here capture the recollected experiences of these aging African Americans. As historical documents they contribute dimension and texture in the remarkable story they relate, while furnishing us with teaching resources that are both instructional and compelling. When combined with narratives made available by the

    Updated February, 2002
    African-American History Month offers many opportunities for adult English language learners to begin to understand the complex history and culture of the United States at the same time they are acquiring English. This yearly observance can be particularly fruitful because many communities provide a variety of free activities in the form of music, art, conferences, and speeches that classes can attend. TV and radio also offer special programs that can be used as homework assignments, or taped for focused use in the classroom. African-American History Month or Black History Month, as it is also called, was established in February 1976. This celebration was an extension and evolution of the original Negro History Week which was established by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1926. This month celebrates the immense contributions that African-Americans have made to the United States while acknowledging that for much of the country's existence, these contributions have been ignored or downplayed.
