Celebrate Black History Month

The NYS Library has collections related to Black history, from the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation and continuing through the development of the Harlem neighborhood in NYC, known as the Harlem Renaissance, and more. Over the years we've celebrated Black History Month focusing on some notable New Yorkers, featuring information by and/or about individuals including Kenneth B. Clark, Duke Ellington, and Sojourner Truth. We want to hear from you! Is there a Black artist, writer, scientist, friend, or family member that's inspired you?
