Black Americans in Congress, 1870-2007
One of our most recent federal document acquisitions is titled Black Americans in Congress, 1870-2007. This book, published by the U.S. House of Representatives, presents biographies on all African-Americans who have served and currently serve in the U.S. Congress. Feel free to browse this book at the law library, or access a full text version available through the U.S. Government Printing Office.
For those who may be more interested in this historic topic, The U.S. Capitol's Office of the Clerk has even created a website for the book with extra features, including lesson plans for teachers.
