Based on "The African American Odyssey: A Quest for Full Citizenship," a major exhibit on display at The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., this site explores Black America's quest for equality from the early national period through the twentieth century. Content includes: the work of abolitionists in the first half of the nineteenth century; depictions of the long and still incomplete struggle for equality in employment, education and politics; strategies used to secure the vote; recognition of outstanding black leaders; and the contributions of sports figures, black soldiers, artists, actors, writers and others in the fight against segregation and discrimination.
