The Biography Resource Center: African Americans is a comprehensive database of biographical information on over 24,000 people from throughout history, and across all disciplines and subject areas. It combines nearly 30,000 biographies from almost 60 volumes of 6 respected Gale Cengage sources including Contemporary Black Biography, Notable Black American Men, Notable Black American Women, Who's Who Among African Americans, and many more, with more than 42,000 full-text articles from nearly 300 magazines including American History, Essence, Jet, and U.S. News & World Report. This powerful combination gives the researcher instant access to the wealth of biographical data compiled by Gale Cengage over more than 50 years, as well as nearly 2,000 images, in-depth coverage of key events, and up-to-date reporting that can be found in magazines.

Biography Resource Center: African Americans is designed to provide quick and easy access to this vast array of information, thereby meeting a wide range of information needs. Researchers needing a brief summary or description of personal information on a particular individual will find thousands of thumbnail entries from Who's Who Among African Americans. Narrative biographies provide an in-depth overview of the subject's life and accomplishments. Magazine articles bring coverage of the subject up-to-date and broaden the view of his or her place in history, society, a particular field of endeavor, or the news. Recent Update windows display a brief summary of recent news events relating to the individual, information which will subsequently be incorporated into the subject's biographies. (Over 450 news events are presented in Recent Update boxes that are linked to more than 350 high-interest individuals.) Researchers who need to continue their search for information beyond what is available in Biography Resource Center: African Americans will find nearly 250 vetted web links for additional information.
