African-American history

Hi there guys. I would like to share with you some information that might be useful for you to know more about the African-American citizens.

In this link, you would find a really extensive “Black history timeline”

http://www.biography.com/tv/classroom/black-history-timeline

You will get to know how the first African slaves were brought to USA, how all started and how all continued up to almost the present.

There are also some links that takes you to different sections such as Videos (you will find videos on Martin Luther King, Jr, Nelson Mandela, Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin to name a few), Photos (with diverse topics such as African-American Firsts Athletes, Black Comedians and so on), Study Guides (in here you will find background information, activity ideas, and discussion questions about people who were inspirational for the wolrdwide culture) and a game that was really hard for me because I lack the necessary historical information about African-American people.

In summary, this webpage it’s amazingly outstanding for educational purposes!
