HIST 304: Black Study and the University

Prof. Michael Jirik - Spring 2021

Content Note

Note: Digitized primary sources often contain harmful language when referencing marginalized groups of people, and the search tools almost always require that researchers use the terminology of the original authors in order to bring back relevant search results. This can make the research process quite painful. Please feel free to reach out to me or to your professor for assistance navigating this research process.

Newspapers & Magazines & More

Many of these primary source databases contain A LOT OF THINGS, including newspapers. Be sure to narrow your search results to the type of thing (newspapers, etc) that you want to look at!

Oral histories & Biographies

Government documents

Large Primary Source Collections

Most -- but not all! -- content in these databases is primary sources.
