Sojourner Truth Room imageAfrican American Incorporated Towns in Prince George’s County will become the focus of the Sojourner Truth Room at the Oxon Hill Branch Library. To the historically African American towns of North Brentwood, Fairmount Heights, Glenarden and Eagle Harbor will be added six incorporated towns that also have sizeable African American populations: Capitol Heights, District Heights, New Carrollton, Seat Pleasant, Landover Hills and Croom. While the room currently has a dedicated collection of African American history resources, the integration of an incorporated town display would focus that history to a very local and relevant level.

Take advantage of these two new PGCMLS electronic resources: ProQuest Black Studies Center and ProQuest African American Heritage.


Black Studies Center

Black Studies Center supports research, teaching, and learning in Black Studies and provides detailed coverage of the Black experience in disciplines such as history, literature, political science, sociology, philosophy and religion.


AAH Who is Waiting to be Found? imageProQuest® African American Heritage was created in partnership with leading African American genealogists and recognized leaders in genealogical information to develop a comprehensive mix of resources, records, and tools specifically pertaining to African Americans.
