It’s slightly belated, but for those who might have forgotten, February is African American History Month! The Library of Congress has a website devoted to honoring this month – you can find it here. This year’s celebration centers around the role African Americans played in the Civil War.
Here at the library we have a number of books pertaining to African Americans in the Civil War. Feel free to peruse them at your leisure – follow this link to our catalog for a list of titles.
President Obama also issued a Presidential Proclamation regarding African American History Month you might want to check out.
