Columbus, Ohio has a rich African American history that dates back to the early 1800's. Historian Rita Fuller-Yates and her team of researchers have worked to capture stories and images that reflect that rich history. Black History and the contributions of African Americans have helped to shape the landscape of our city. From the rich arts culture and amazing musical history of Bronzeville, to the outatanding community leadership and clubs established to help the black community grow.
The African American experience in Columbus has always been rooted in family and in community. "Images from our Past", seeks to share our stories through photos and short historical notes. We hope that through these photos, a desire to know more about Columbus and its rich History sparks within.
