Join Business Reference Services for a webinar on Wednesday, February 8, on African Americans in Business: Doing Historical Company Research.
Explore historical company research featuring historic Black barbers who resisted the status quo by supporting Black education and civil rights movements. Many of these men went on to other businesses, including insurance, finance, real estate and more.
In addition to sharing research around the Black entrepreneurs, this class will also show strategies to locate information on historical figures and companies more broadly. While this class uses resources available at the Library of Congress, many may also be available through your local library or historical society. Led by Business Reference and Research Specialists, we plan on covering print and electronic sources – both free and subscription – as well as giving a few tips and tricks picked up over the years.
Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or [email protected].
