This is a big week for The Black Towns Project. On this week’s #SaturdaySchool we premier the official website for The Black Towns project. The website is a work-in-progress, and is will be continuously updated to improve functionality and provide new content for the current list of towns in the Black Town Index.
The Black Towns Project website is an effort to preserve and promote the continued study of these crucial, and sometimes forgotten, stories from America’s past. Please browse the Black Towns Index (categorized by state and town) and explore the history of these important town building efforts. The project will continue to add information and town histories, and invites those who do not see a town on the list to submit it through the Submit a Black Town page. If you would like to moderate a black town page, please visit our Moderate a Black Town’s Page to sign-up.
