Tangled Roots is a research project about the shared history of African Americans and Irish Americans. The purpose of the site is to investigate the history of American slaves and immigrants from Ireland and to consider the links between them in order to promote an understanding of race and ethnicity in America. The site includes short biographical sketches of important people, organizations and events from the history of African and Irish Americans; questions for class discussion; timelines; bibliographic references; and links to related web sites. It also provides access to The Gilder Lehrman Center's online document collection, which contains over 200 individual items dating from the 17th century to the present, including speeches, letters, cartoons and graphics, interviews, and articles. The documents are organized by author, date, subject, and document type.
