African American coal miners

I am seeking information on coal mining and miners of African descent in the United States (and Canada) from the 1800s to around 1930. I am doing extensive research on this topic, and have uncovered evidence of coal miners in over a dozen states from coast to coast. Their places of birth are wide ranging with the highest representation being from the states of Alabama and Virginia. I am sure I am just touching the tip of the iceberg. Recently I created a coal miner website which you can view by following the link below. If you have a coal mining ancestor please send me the particulars, and be sure to visit the site as it has information that may prove helpful in tracking down one of your elusive ancestors.
