One hundred years ago today, Woodrow Wilson's vision for world trade, labor issues and the raging war in Europe were among the stories that filled the front page of The New York Times. The entire newspaper from that day, and every day from its initial publishing in 1851 through 2013, is part of the library's New York Times Archive database. Available for in-library use only, the easily searchable database is a valuable resource for researchers, genealogists and students, providing accounts of local, regional, national and international events. To access the New York Times (1851-2013) database while in the library, choose Explore at the top of the library's home page, then click on Research and Databases A-Z.
Spotlight on the Humanities: Religion in American Life "Black Gods, Prophets, and Utopian Visions: Religion and Racial Identity in Early 20th Century America"
Princeton University Prof. Judith Weisenfeld explores the intersections of religion and racial identity among black migrants from the South and immigrants from the Caribbean who encountered one another in the northern cities of the early twentieth century Great Migration. The focus is on the founders and members of groups like the Moorish Science Temple, Father Divine's Peace Mission movement, congregations of Ethiopian Hebrews, and the Nation of Islam, all of which emerged in the context of urbanization, migration, and immigration, and promoted alternative understandings of black racial identity and collective history to the dominant narratives provided by mainstream black Protestant churches and in broader American society.
