Description"The African-American Experience in Ohio, 1850-1920 comprises digital reproductions of materials drawn from many collections held by the Ohio Historical Society. [...] The collection illustrates several major themes: slavery, abolition, and the underground railroad; African Americans in politics and government; and African-American religion. [...] The textual materials for this collection have been drawn from many sources in the Ohio Historical Society's collections. From the manuscript collections come personal papers of prominent individuals, association records, a plantation account book, ex-slave narratives, and documents relating to the freeing of individual slaves. A major collection comprises the correspondence of George A. Myers, a businessman and politician who played an active role in the Republican Party at the turn of the century. Printed works include pamphlets, speeches, and reports. Longer works include the 1909 Handbook of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the 1897 Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism, compiled by Benjamin Arnett. Over 15,000 articles about African Americans and issues affecting them have been selected from eleven Ohio newspapers. Also included are over 200 articles from the African Methodist Episcopal Church Review and other materials published by the church."
