African American History Month - Library of Congress

"In celebration of African American History Month, the Library of Congress will sponsor a series of special events and has developed this new Web site highlighting the many resources on African American history and culture available from our extensive online collections. This annual celebration is one of the ways in which the Library heightens awareness and recognizes the contributions of African Americans to our nation. This year's theme, "From Slavery to Freedom: Africans in the Americas," honors John Hope Franklin, a celebrated historian, and his 1947 signature publication. On December 5, 2006, Professor Franklin received the John W. Kluge Prize, an award for lifetime achievement in those disciplines not covered by the Nobel prizes
