The African American National Biography, a joint project of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University and Oxford University Press, was published in an eight volume print edition in January 2008.
Covering a broader range of African American lives than ever before, the African American National Biography presents history through a mosaic of the lives of 4,100 individuals, some known throughout the world and others all but forgotten, illuminating the abiding influence of African Americans on the life of this nation through the immediacy of personal experience. We include not only great and famous African Americans, but a selection that will be representative of the scope of African American experience.
