The Monumental African American Project

.The Monumental African American Project is a collaborative effort first envisioned by Geoffrey Black in 1975 when he began photographing many of the monuments on this website. Since then, others (mostly family and friends) have contributed photographs, background information, research and ideas to help in the creation of this website and related materials. The site is designed to present the monuments in thematic groupings and by era in order to help readers focus their exploration of African American History and Culture.  While the collection of monuments on this website is extensive, we are well aware that it is not exhaustive. For a more comprehensive view of monuments related to African American History  press the "Read More" button below.

We invite others, who know of monuments not represented on our site, to contribute information and photographs. If we use them we will gladly acknowledge the contributor with a photo credit.
