In Honor of Black History Month

Thomson Gale has assembled a collection of activities and information to complement classroom topics, including: Bbiographies of significant African-American individuals; a Black History Month quiz; a timeline of events that helped shape African-American heritage; activities taken from the Black History Month Resource Book; and African-American literature.

The Department of Education has, of course, a vast collection of materials on Afro - American history, as well as biographies, "interesting facts," and access to documents.

The Librarians' Index to the Internet has (by way of InfoPlease) more - much more

The Library of Congress has an exhaustive catalog

Then there's the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

And last, but certainly not least, is a site that most people don't think of when researching Black History: the National Archives, containing thousands of documents important to the study of Black History.
