I doing a reasearch on African American Culture.
I would suggest that you check out our online research guide to ethnic studies: http://library.uhd.edu/ethnicstudies.
The "ethnic studies research databases" that it links to will let you search for articles on various subjects. So, for example, you might choose the "Academic Search Complete" database. Use it to search for African American religion, as an example, and then when you see a link that says "full text", that's a link to the whole article that you can read online. Click on it to read, save, or print the article. Not all of the articles in every database can be viewed that way, but many can.
Other databases will have different articles in them, so try a few and see if you get the information you need.
