History

The bibliography, Trailtones: The African-American Heritage of Arizona, compiled by Gloria L. Smith contains materials that highlight African-American heritage in Arizona.  

Probably the first person of African heritage who came to this area was a member of a Spanish expedition.  Esteban was originally from Morocco, and was a slave to a Spaniard. He first arrived in the New World in 1528.  See Esteban, a 16th Century Explorer.
