Celebrating Black History Month

The month of February reminds us there are many great Americans – not just Presidents, but iconic leaders, such as Martin Luther King Jr., who have founded movements that have changed lives forever. February is a dedicated time to celebrate Black History Month.

The history of the achievements and innovations of African Americans throughout our Nation’s history is vast and diverse. The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has printed several publications throughout the years that highlight those triumphs.

The GPO online bookstore offers a collection of publications focusing on some of the important events involving African Americans from military service to civil rights, and the incredible recent history-making members now in elected Federal office. Browse our publications celebrating African American history here.
