International AAHGS Book Awards®

The International AAHGS Book Awards is a competitive contest established to recognize, promote and honor authors of high quality publications that accurately examine and portray African-ancestored family history and genealogy in a wide variety of genres both fiction and non-fiction, for adults and young readers.    

The Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) takes great pride in sponsoring this book Awards program as part of its mission to document and disseminate research to all sectors of the American population on the history, struggles, and contributions of African Americans from Jamestown to the present. While film and video are vastly popular, books remain the primary and definitive locus and resource for the recording and teaching of history and genealogy especially in educational settings.

AAHGS is a non-profit, charitable 50(c)3 organization committed to the preservation of African-ancestored family history, genealogy, and cultural diversity by teaching research techniques and disseminating information throughout the community. Our primary goals are to promote scholarly research, provide resources for historical and genealogical studies, create a network of persons with similar interests, and assist members in documenting their histories.
