    Smith SI Smithsonian's History Explorer was developed by the National Museum of American History in partnership with the Verizon Foundation to offer hundreds of free, innovative online resources.

    Black History This site is a product of the History Channel.  It includes time lines, media, biographies, historical interpretations and even a tour of the famous Apollo Theater.  One might find this site overwhelming with activities, but there is more than enough here to keep one occupied for hours.

    infoplease Though not as visually stimulating as the "commercial" History Channel site , the InfoPlease site has a wealth of information accessible from very clearly well organized links.

    loc   The Library of Congress has created an African American History Month resource that is worthy of the greatest library in the world.  The information within contains many authentic and primary sources.  This is not necessarily and easy site to navigate, but with some focus and concentration one would be able to find amazingly rich kernels of information. This site takes a while to load, but is well worth the wait.

      This is a link to a very interesting Virtual tour of objects which are thematically linked to African American History.     Engaging in this multi-media site is like actually going to the museum.

    nps  Believe it or not, the National Park Service has a lot to offer the on line participant.  There are historical schools, churches, courtrooms, parks and, of course people represented in the interactive multi-media site.

    national human    This national Endowment for the Humanities site is rich with all the Humanities encompasses: Art Literature, Music and History.  There is an obvious effort on the part of NEH to provide lessons which will support the teacher's decision to actively pursue investigation in African American History.
