Black Americans

The library offers this guide to resources as a way to support student understanding and awareness of history, culture, and contributions of African Americans


An understanding of African American history and culture is an essential part of understanding current American society, and will be useful in many courses and for personal reading and enrichment.  Although College of the Redwoods does not offer a degree or certificate in this topic, interested students may wish to transfer to a four year college that does offer it as a major. This guide supports student's understanding and cultural awareness of the value of multiculturalism and diversity by providing selected resources.  If you need additional assistance in locating appropriate resources, please contact the library.
