February is African American History Month

Ventura County Library joins the Library of Congress and many others in paying tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.

For starters, in our eLibrary under "Biography":

 * See Biography In Context for articles about famous figures in African American history, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and Barack Obama.

 * Explore Chelsea House Biographies - their featured collection this month highlights Black History Month.

 * Browse Gale Virtual Reference Library's "Encyclopedia of African-American Culture and History"

 Enjoy exploring - it's all free with your library card!
