African Americans

"A person who lives in the U.S. and is a member of a race of people with dark skin that originally came from Africa.” (CD) While “mulatto” (19th century) and other racial categories refers to a person with both white and black ancestry, CWRGM includes multiracial people of African descent under the African Americans social identifiers subject tag to ensure mixed race African Americans’ experiences are discoverable.
