AAHGS News is a bi-monthly publication.  We use journalism “to tell our own story” much like Russworm and Cornish, the publishers of the first black newspaper in America, Freedom’s Journal, did beginning in 1827.  We are keenly aware that although the first slave ship arrived on North American shores some 400 years ago (1619), the majority of the histories, life stories, and genealogies of African Americans are waiting to be excavated, written, and published. 

The goal of our News Staff is to encourage, assist, and provide an outlet in our pages to family historians/journalists/scholars telling those innumerable stories.  We are primarily a digital publication but hard copies are available on a limited basis depending on existing inventory.
