Black History Month

"Each February, Black History Month subverts conventional narratives of American history by centering the grandeur and travails of the black freedom struggle" (Peniel E. Joseph, UT Austin, taken from a recently-published CNN op-ed titled Why This Year's Black History Month is Pivotal).

See the Primary Sources Online page of this guide for links to dozens more library e-books, databases, and open access websites that chronicle the African American experience.
