Black History Month Resources

We dream of, and work toward, a day that Black and Indigenous people's history is taught fully integrated in all homes and classrooms as an equal part of American history. Today, we recognize Black History Month and honor the many achievements and contributions of Black Americans. Too many have fought, and died, striving for social and racial justice in our past and it is up to us to work together to change our future! By looking back at our past, we can analyze events and think critically about present-day challenges and injustices.

“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.” Learn more at www.africanamericanhistorymonth.gov.
 
Our Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Kali Baird, together with Librarian Karlyn Strand, offer the following articles as helpful to learning about our past and planning for a more just, equitable, and peaceful future.

Lastly, if you would like to visit an African American History Museums virtually, here is a list of those offering online tours.
