February is African American History Month

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. 

There are online exhibits representing only a selection of the digital and physical holdings of the participating agencies. Collections include Art & Design, Baseball, Civil Rights, Culture and Folklife, Government & Politics, Historic Places, Military, Music & Performing Arts, and Slavery. Videos, images, text, and original documents are all part of these exhibits celebrating the lives of African Americans.
