African American History Month

February is African American History Month! Throughout the month, we will be honoring African American History on the ABC-CLIO Blog.

African American History is an important topic to ABC-CLIO. We have hundreds of books on the topic, ranging from health to popular culture to politics and government titles, as well as an online database devoted to the African American Experience.

This year's theme is "African Americans and the Civil War".

Check back for weekly updates, excerpts, guest blogs, and more.
