       This inaugural issue of the HUArchivesNet marks an important historical occasion as we approach the 21st century.

       By putting technology to work in communities throughout the world, the HUArchivesNet will provide a link to historical documents, primary resources and images. These documents present the story of the African American experience in a unique format.

       The presentation of these resources affirms the often unheralded and little known contributions of African Americans to our nation. Drawing from this wellspring of materials, HUArchivesNet will provide not only materials for the recovery of the past, but also give a new perspective for the future.

       The launching of this electronic journal at Howard University, with the cooperation and financial support of MCI WorldCom, is a significant event.  The Moorland- Spingarn Research Center of Howard University is honored to provide this unique look into the African American heritage.
