Honors and Recognitions

People pointing to an award

Happy African American History month! In honor of this month, we would like to invite you to check out some of our historic portraits of California's African American legislators. If you are curious about African American history, you might also find our African Americans in California research guide interesting. We have also just released a Medicine in California guide in honor of California's tireless medical professionals and named San Francisco the city and county of the month! Please feel free to check out any of these resources or come by the History Section to see our materials in person!
