  • A WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR

    The ABWH promotes rigorous and path-breaking scholarship in black women’s history and supports the professional development of black women historians. Its membership is made up of men and women of all races and includes students, professional historians, curators, archivists, librarians, and friends of black women’s studies.

    Become a member and, if you are already a member, get more involved: “this past”—our past—is still waiting for you to write it into her story and our story.

    - Francille Rusan Wilson, ABWH National Director Associate Professor of American Studies & Ethnicity and History, University of Southern California
