In Response To: Writing Monix family history ()
I was delighted to read your message that underlined the importance of connecting family history with historical events.
One of the best sites and all encompassing for the African American experience is a collaborative project with the NYC Schomburg Library. Entitled "In Motion The African-American Migration Experience." I like it because it touches on the black experience in all parts of the US and documents various regional histories that were influenced by countries other than the British. This is important in the study of states in the Lower South, the West and Midwest whose history continues to be clouded by the erroroneous belief that the US was founded by English settlers. LOL.

Also, I've included a posting on the Afrigeneas States Forum. Although the years are just after the Mississippi time frame that you're researching, "A Fatal Flood: A Story of Greed Power and Race", was broadcast on PBS' "American Experience", might be of interest to you in your research.

Best of luck to you.
