This digital collection spans 1830-1865 and presents the massive, international impact of African American activism against slavery, in the writings and publications of the activists themselves. Approximately 15,000 articles, documents, correspondence, proceedings, manuscripts, and literary works of nearly 300 black abolitionists show the full range of their activities in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Germany.

Black Studies Center – It is a digital core collection of primary and secondary sources that record and illuminate the Black experience, from ancient Africa through modern times. This one-stop resource provides everything you need to enrich your existing Black Studies collection or start a new one from the ground up. 

C19 Index – It provides integrated access to over 25 million records, including several indexes unique to ProQuest. Direct links are provided to the full text in ProQuest resources which libraries are subscribed to and to full-text resources on the open web. New content is indexed each year.
