A Roadmap to African-American and Diversity Resources (ARAADR) Links
Purpose: Learn about African-American and Diversity Resource links that you can visit on the Internet. The sites offer a range of resources: connecting you to pages where you can access both primary and secondary documents, databases, archives, libraries, maps, images and more. The focus covers what is available for the United States with an emphasis on Florida and Central America. The links cover at least one of the following criteria; sites that offer resources at the secondary, college and university levels; sites that allow access to material without copyright restrictions on downloading and circulating materials in an educational setting; and sites from well-known government databases. Some sites will deal with world history, including England, Canada, Caribbean and Africa.
All web sites have been approved by librarians and/or subject area specialists. This database makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of design, accuracy of the information contained on the individual web sites, merchantability or fitness for use for a particular purpose.

FIRST BLACK OWNED SEARCH ENGINE
The BlackWebPortal is the only site that is 100% African-American owned. A dynamic young African-American Internet duo, Rob and Roz Rucker have created a brand new search engine and portal site called The BlackWebPortal.com. BlackVoices is wholly owned by the Tribune Company; Black Families by Cox Communications; BlackPlanet.com by an Asian company; and Soul City HBO by AOL-Times/Warner. The site is designed with African-Americans in mind.
