Celebrate Black History Month!

Black History MonthBlack History Month, assigned to February, is an opportunity to explore and reflect on the rich history of achievement of African Americans, despite the tremendous obstacles they have faced in the United States. To help campuses make the most of this month, we have assembled a baker's dozen of essential documentaries that explore African American history.

We have also set up a playlist of the films. If your campus already subscribes to The Docuseek2 Collection, consider these programming ideas for your library and student organizations. If you need flyers promoting the Docuseek2 Black History Month films, email .

For colleges and universities new to Docuseek2, we are offering a streaming starter package of the 13 films at a special introductory price — register and log in and take a look at the Black History Month sampler page for pricing, or email for details.
