February is African American History Month and there are a variety of organizations hosting events throughout the month.  With so much going on it is impossible to provide a complete list of resources and events available nationally and locally, but we’d like to spotlight a few.

Association for the Study of African American Life and History:  Learn more about Carter G. Woodson, the “Father of Black History” and his efforts “disseminating information about black life, history and culture to the global community.”

Smithsonian Education:  There is a great list of black history teaching resources, including reading lists for young people between the ages of 3 and 10.

The National Park Service:  Learn about the park sites dedicated to African American history and culture.

The National Archives:  The Archives hold a wealth of material documenting the African American experience, and highlights these resources online, in programs, and through traditional and social media.

The NNLM SCR would like to spend African American History Month focusing on health-related issues that are specific to or largely impact African Americans.  Continue to check our blog weekly for new stories in line with this theme.
