African American Registry (The Registry) is a non-profit educational resource for the learning community to supply teachers with the information, method, and materials to provide a solid educational background in black history and heritage, in the sciences, business, the arts, and all facets of academics and life.
The Registry is used to train teachers for content classroom use in all subjects employing educational companion products which support the website. Currently there are two types of yearly calendars, Black Heritage/365, and an education card game for children aged eight and older named, Fishing the Registry. The organization supports itself through product sales, and modest fees for presentations, workshops, seminars, training and programs. In September 2004 the agency received its 501(c)(3) status and now adds donations and foundation support towards its mission of teaching African-American heritage as American heritage in all subjects everyday through training, curriculum, technology and products.
