Oberlin: A Legacy of Positive Change

Greetings Everyone:

Oberlin College has always been an historical icon for American liberalism, especially during the 1960's. But why Oberlin? Why Ohio?

The links to Oberlin's website below, present a long history of African American activitism and leadership before, during and after Reconstruction. The profiles of its citizens and the census records of Oberlin and Russia Townships will connect us to a unique but very American chapter in US history.
