The California State Library is proud that this special issue of Connection is coming out during Black History Month.  The library-centric Underground Railroad projects we feature here discuss the emerging collection of narratives and items that are redefining the history of African Americans not just in California, but nationwide.

To further celebrate Black History Month, through March 2004 visitors to the California State Library will enjoy an exhibit of rare books, prints, photographs, and manuscripts documenting the African American experience in the United States and California, including the very rare first printing of the Emancipation Proclamation and the vote of the California Legislature on the 13th Amendment.

The Exhibit will be in the lobby of the Library and Courts Building at 914 Capitol Mall in Sacramento.
