Recent Research: 15 Resources Extending Beyond Black History Month
Needless to say, research into topics pertinent to Black history extends well beyond the month of February. In recent years, the Decorative arts Trust has had the privilege of sharing a variety of stories that delve into a broad swath of research about Black history, material culture, and craftsmanship. We are grateful to the scholars who contributed to these articles, blog posts, and programs and look forward to following their contributions to the field.
