Avoice for Educators

The Avoice Web site is a comprehensive resource for teachers, scholars, students and people interested in American legislative history. It is designed to capture and preserve the rich history of political and legislative contributions of African Americans for future generations. This virtual online library is a central source of information about historical and contemporary American policy issues important to researchers, academics, educators and students. History is being made every day by African-American legislators. We will preserve those events and add to the site continuously. We will provide interactive learning tools that highlight the history of African-American political involvement in Congress and promote civic engagement among the youth. For more information, visit avoiceonline.org.
