February marks the annual observation of Black History Month. During this time, many educators teach students about the influence of African American history on the United States. BCLS has several useful resources that can assist with lesson plans and student research. This includes the databases Facts on File: African American History Online; Facts on File: American History; and Biography Collection Complete. These tools are useful for finding information on historic individuals and events. The databases can be found on our Online Resources page. In addition, our libraries house a variety of materials on the topic.
