Links to Other Websites
It is our intent to identify the most important websites
in several areas of importance to us and to index them completely.
This means that anyone using RaceMatters.org
will be able to conduct a search for a name or topic restricting
the search to the websites we've identified as especially important.
This will greatly reducing the amount of irrelevant material one must
search through. The search can be targeted to sources we judge to be
dependable and relevant. This is a great improvement on the search
capability we've had until now because until now our search has been
limited to material in our web portal (or the entire web).
When this work is completed, one will be able to select from the
following "universes" when starting a search.
- Race matters, this will include some "sensitive" content
that will make one uncomfortable and will include all of "Valuing Diversity".
- Valuing diversity, this will exclude "sensitive" items.
- Community building.
- African-American culture, heritage and tradition. (thanks to
- Children at risk, health care, poverty, economic development.
- Voice of America news and features (this is not a website; it is an OpenHere.com database).
- TAMPU resource items, including RaceMatters.org.
- combinations of the above.
- the entire world wide web.
Another benefit of spidering
our national community of websites is that as new or changed material
appears on any of our websites, it can automatically be posted to
What's New at RaceMatters.org (and ValuingDiversity.org).
Below is presented a proposed starting list of websites in each area.
Websites can be added or deleted from these lists anytime we wish,
but we'd like to get started with as good a list as we can. Please
