Contributions by African Americans
to the arts, education, industry, literature, politics and
much more are well represented in the vast collections of
the Library of Congress. The Library's digital collections,
online exhibits, online catalog, databases and other resources provide a broad range of multi-formated material available for research on the African American experience.
The primary focus of this guide is to connect the user to full text online
resources regarding significant people, major institutions
and events from an African American perspective, historically
related to an era. This extensive resource enhances the use
