Title

Video - History Matters: The Colored Conventions Project

Description

This History Matters video features the University of Delaware's interdisciplinary Colored Conventions Project (CCP). CCP digitizes the meeting minutes of the nation's early Black national and state conventions which took place between 1830 until well after the Civil War. These minutes provide a view of Black leadership and life that has been, until now, hard to access and shows how issues delegates debated much more than a century ago connect to demands for educational, legal and labor equality and access as well as civil and human rights today.
