Great source of information for the multidisciplinary study of Africana Studies--includes African Nations and African Diaspora
From the collection site: "Although African studies is a relatively new discipline, the field has generated a large body of publications in the past 45 to 50 years. Most of these of course were published in garden-variety ways, in sufficient copies to remain reasonably available in today's much improved document-delivery environment. Nonetheless, there have been exceptions--materials that were published in limited, sometimes very limited, quantities."
“The 7,000-plus photographs in this extraordinary collection document the changing relationships among Africans and between Africans and Europeans during 100 years of dramatic historic change,” says Herskovits Library curator David Easterbrook. Northwestern University
"A set of thousands of images taken from a broader photographic collection of British Foreign Office and Commonwealth Office images, held at The National Archives [of Great Britain]. Starting with some incredible early photographs from the 1860s, the images span over 100 years of African history. These images are now available, for the first time, to view online."--The National Archives website.
