Produced by the award-winning online division of New York City's public broadcasting affiliate, AFRICAN AMERICAN WORLD presents the broad range of the black experience in the United States, from the Harlem Renaissance to the ongoing debate over affirmative action. Visitors to the home page will find "Hot Features," highlighting the latest sites related to African-American culture, such as JIM CROW ONLINE, official companion to the upcoming PBS landmark series, THE RISE AND FALL OF JIM CROW.
"AFRICAN AMERICAN WORLD offers unique insight into a vital part of American life," said executive producer Jennifer Lawson. "The site is extremely useful for children working on homework assignments, for teenagers who may want to learn more about popular culture and for adults interested in genealogy."
Site features include:
Advisors for AFRICAN AMERICAN WORLD include notable academics and historians Henry Louis Gates, Jr., director of the W.E.B Du Bois Institute at Harvard University; Howard Dodson, head of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at the New York Public Library; and Diane Batts Morrow, assistant professor in history at the Institute for African-American Studies at the University of Georgia. Stanley Nelson, executive producer of Firelight Media and an award winning documentary filmmaker, also served as an advisor for AFRICAN AMERICAN WORLD.
AFRICAN AMERICAN WORLD was made possible by generous support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
