Black History Month: Home

Provides information about Black History Month and some notable African Americans from throughout history.

Welcome to this LibGuide about Black History Month! Every February, we celebrate the contributions of notable African Americans in history and take a look back at the history of the United States with special attention to the experiences of African Americans. This community and their history deserve to be studied and celebrated all year long and this guide serves as a starting point for research for personal interest or for a school project that you may be working on.
