Join us as we celebrate Black History Month. The downloadable resources and external links below provide programming assistance and promote the focus of this month’s featured database. Gale’s Biography In Context will help you raise awareness about unsung heroes and heroines in the African American community and Chris’s upcoming webinar will teach you to get the most from all these resources.

Remember, all these terrific resources are brought to you by your friends at the Wyoming State Library. It’s all good stuff.
