ProQuest Black Studies Demo

Awarded 4 Stars and the 2022 Readers' Choice for Best New Product by The Charleston Advisor.

Developed in collaboration with faculty, scholars and librarians, ProQuest Black Studies brings together ProQuest's seminal and award-winning Black Studies collections into a single destination to support meaningful research, teaching, and learning.
“ProQuest Black Studies is positioned to become the database of choice for both students and scholars in African American studies. Researchers of all levels will appreciate the database’s powerful search, user-friendly design, and extensive scholarly and archival content.”
An innovation in historical research, ProQuest Black Studies combines for the first time the archival research experience alongside Black historical newspapers and curated secondary sources. The combination of first-hand accounts through primary sources combined with secondary sources of videos, journals and essays equips students to think critically and analyze the people, organizations, and events of Black Studies from multiple perspectives.

This exemplary resource is offered on an intuitive platform with user-friendly features such as segmented search results, featured people, and collection pages that offer a framework for common assignments and facilitate deep discovery.

These are the sources I would come back to again and again, and where I would send my students, to find what's not available anywhere else: the primary source collections and the newspapers.
