Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History & Culture Enduring Connections: Exploring Delmarva's Black History

About the Project

Exploring Delmarva's Black History

The Enduring Connections project aims to preserve and make accessible the rich history and culture of Delmarva’s Black communities through a searchable database with information extracted from public records in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia, as well as Nabb Research Center, private, and other regional collections. As new connections are discovered between records--such as censuses, certificates of freedom, church records, newspapers, ledgers, and oral histories--individuals and themes throughout Black history will be featured on our stories page. For questions, please email the Nabb Research Center.
