Welcome to the subject guide on Black History

Black history has been essential to America's history since before our nation's founding. This guide contains information on key figures and events in Black history, from the Atlantic slave trade to the Civil Rights era to the Black Lives Matters movement of today. The tabs at the top of this page will direct you to information about books, articles, streaming videos, and online resources. If you have any trouble finding these sources, please ask a librarian for help.
