The African-American Mosaic Exhibition February 9–August 29, 1994 This exhibit marks the publication of The African-American Mosaic: A Library of Congress Resource Guide for the Study of Black History and Culture. A noteworthy and singular publication, the Mosaic is the first Library-wide resource guide to the institution's African-American collections. Covering the nearly 500 years of the black experience in the Western hemisphere, the Mosaic surveys the full range size, and variety of the Library's collections, including books, periodicals, prints, photographs, music, film, and recorded sound. Moreover, the African-American Mosaic represents the start of a new kind of access to the Library's African-American collections, and, the Library trusts, the beginning of reinvigorated research and programming drawing on these, now systematically identified, collections.

Historical Fiction K-12 Book Lists When I started teaching fifth grade U.S. History, one of my goals was to have the kids read historical fiction about the time period we were studying. And so 13 years later, I’m still adding to my list (included some non-fiction works) and have expanded it to World and Ancient History since I taught those as well. Now that I have a new platform here, I decided I’d give others the opportunity to see them. They are in no way complete, please let me know if you know of a book that I missed. Some of the books may be out of print (I did start this a long time ago).
