Black In Toledo – An Introduction

I began this blog due to an interest in black American genealogy and local history pertaining to the Toledo area of Northwest Ohio.

I anticipate posting various items regarding my own genealogical research, interesting historical finds regarding black Toledo, and current events that I find interesting in relation to our local history.

Though the focus will be on Toledo and Northwest Ohio, due to the transient nature of black Americans from the 1800s to the mid 1900s, other locales will also be discussed regarding my own genealogical finds.

Hopefully others with an interest in the black history of this area will find the posts insightful and it will encourage other black Toledoans and black Americans in general to discover more about our rich, cultural past.

  1. I used to the dead of the African American Studies program at the University of Toledo. I am coming to Toledo to finish working on a book on Toledo history next week end and Monday and would like to meet with you if possible.
