HIST 126: African American History II

Professor Rebecca Brüeckmann -- winter 2024

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.

What is a primary source?

There is no one type of thing that is a primary source. Depending on your particular research a primary source might include...

autobiographies, published scholarly journals, newspapers, archival collections of letters, personal diaries, photographs, videos, interviews, pamphlets, or artwork
