African American Biographical Database

The African American Biographical Database (AABD) brings together in one resource the biographies of thousands of African Americans, many not to be found in any other reference source. These biographical sketches have been carefully assembled from biographical dictionaries and other sources. This extraordinary collection contains extended narratives of African American activists, business people, former slaves, performing artists, educators, lawyers, physicians, writers, church leaders, homemakers, religious workers, government workers, athletes, farmers, scientists, factory workers, and more--both the famous and the everyday person. Their stories are pivotal to an understanding of the Black American experience over the last two centuries.

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the African American Registry is a link libraries should consider adding to their web pages. Including blogs, videos, text articles, links to other resources, the site translates into languages around the world (Google translations), family history, etc. I’ve included information below about the Registry. Benjamin Mchie is always interested in coming and speaking to library staff and they are especially interested in helping library staff and teachers use the site with students. They are receiving hits on the site from all over the world and I was especially interested in the quick ability to change the text on the site to other languages.
