    AAJFG - 1.01 - Wisconsin Black History and Contributions


    According to Wisconsin’s Historical Society,  African Americans have been living and working in Wisconsin since the 18th century. The state's black population continued to grow slowly throughout the 19th century. Job opportunities in the 20th century led to significant African American settlement in Wisconsin, primarily in the southeastern part of the state, especially after World War II. These resources will support Wisconsin teachers in integrating historical accomplishments and experiences of African-American’s into their instruction on Wisconsin’s history.  Source: The Wisconsin Historical Society houses one of the nation's largest research collections on African-American history.
