About this Item
- African Americans in Business: Doing Historical Company Research
- Explore historical company research through the 2023 Black History Month theme of "Resistance," featuring historic Black barbers who resisted the status quo by supporting black education and civil rights movements. Many went on to other businesses, including insurance, finance, real estate and more. In addition to sharing research around Black barbers, this class will also show strategies to locate information on historical figures and companies more broadly. While the class uses resources available at the Library of Congress, some may be available through your local library or historical society, both of which have resources to help with this type of research. Led by Business Reference and Research Specialists, we plan on covering print and electronic sources - both free and subscription - as well as giving a few tips and tricks picked up over the years.
