Black History Resources at UO Libraries
A great "first stop" for any research project, these guides contain a wealth of librarian-reccommended primary and secondary sources.
Special Collections and University Archives
The archives hold a variety of materials related to Black history, and in 2017 the archivists' Documenting UO History Project will be focused on the legacy of African-American experience at our university. Updates and in-depth articles are regularly published to SCUA's blog, Unbound.
Winter 2017 exhibitions in two of our libraries highlight different aspects of Black history and experience.
- You Must Never Look Away from This: An Artists' Books Selection Inspired by Between the World and Me (in the A&AA Library)
- Brazil: Order and Progress (in the Knight Library)
