African American/Black History
A curated selection of library licensed and freely available online resources highlighting the achievements, perspectives, and experiences of African Americans across U.S. history.
The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.
In celebration of Black History Month, the National Museum of African American History & Culture will examine the theme of Black health and wellness by creating a space that highlights Black pioneers' trailblazing contributions to Western medicine, addresses health disparities facing our communities, and encourages healing through education.
Every February during Black History Month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and their partners share stories, rich culture, and an invitation for all Americans to reflect on Black history in parks and communities across the country.
