Black History Month 2017: Blogs Related to Black Education

Happy Black History Month! This year the Rediscovering Black History blog at the National Archives would like to highlight select posts from the past. This public blog was created to inform researchers, scholars, students, and anyone interested in records related to African-American history at the National Archives and Presidential Libraries on the vast amount of textual, electronic, photographs, and special media available for use. For the past four years, NARA employees, student interns, and independent researchers have written informative and insightful blogs on the black experience through the use of our holdings. The highlighted blog posts for the month of February will center around popular themes. Today’s theme is black education.

The blogs relating to black education in the United States are of special interest to researchers and scholars across the country, as they can relate to concerns surrounding education today. The records in the National Archives on this topic contain information on federal funding, studies on vocational training, legislation regarding equal access, and other issues of the government’s involvement with public education. Our blogs on black education covered several issues, including the desegregation of public schools, innovators in black education, and life on black college campuses.
