The Library of Congress Celebrates Black History Month

The Library of Congress (LC) is marking the start of Black History Month with the introduction of a new curated web archive collection that documents the protests that occurred in response to the police murder of George Floyd, dating between June 29 and Aug. 7, 2020. It focuses on 200-plus web archives that showcase the organized resistance and grassroots movements against racism and police brutality against Black people, as well as activism advocating for police reform. Visit the Protests Against Racism Web Archive at loc.gov/collections/protests-against-racism-web-archive/about-this-collection.

Other Black History Month markers at the LC include an in-person Black History Month 2023: Black Resistance display at the Thomas Jefferson Building, a Feb. 8 webinar titled African Americans in Business: Doing Historical Company Research, and a Feb. 23 in-person concert at the Thomas Jefferson Building featuring Black American music scholar Jake Blount singing and playing the banjo and the fiddle.
