I stumbled across the African American Intellectual History Society when the Twitter hashtag #Charlestonsyllabus gained public attention. A group of librarians, professors and other intellectuals had thoughtfully compiled a list of the various works shared via twitter into one cohesive list.
Once on AAIHS’ site, I began reading the archive of blog posts with interest.
I subsequently signed up for the newsletter and joined the organization. The frequent posts serve as a reminder of my own desire to research topics related to African American history and inspire me to take steps towards contributing my own work.
