PurposeThe graph below is provided as an aid to search for delegates to the Colored Conventions between 1830 and 1883.
Data is limited
Please note that the graph is a work in progress and is not comprehensive. The data in the graph includes only the formal rolls of delegates that appeared in many of the minutes of the conventions. If a person attended a convention, but did not serve as a delegate, their name may not yet appear here. We are also working to include the names of the men and women whose names were left out of the minutes.
