March 5, 2008. Mapping the African American Past (MAAP) is a public website created by CCNMTL and partners to enhance the appreciation and study of significant sites and moments in the history of African Americans in New York from the early 17th century through the recent past.

Read about the MAAP project on the New York Times website and on the Columbia Teachers College website.
