Web Resource Guides
To assist students with their research, we are providing resource guides for African American history and culture in Texas. These guides provide contact information and links to relevant libraries, universities, museums and other organizations that may be helpful resources for research information. These listings are organized into national, statewide and regional Texas resources. The Texas regions represented correspond to the 10 divisions of Texas made for the purposes of the Barbara Jordan Historical Essay Competition (www.utexas.edu/world/barbarajordan). These resource guides were compiled by graduate student Wayne Decker as his School of Information Capstone project at the University of Texas at Austin.

National African-American History Web Resources
