The Black Resource Center (BRC) was established as a special service of the County of Los Angeles Public Library in 1978 to serve the informational and educational needs of African Americans and the larger population by supporting research and study on social, historical and cultural aspects unique to the African American experience.

The Center serves as an information and referral agency to other libraries, government agencies and the general public. It is an important link in the survival and preservation of the heritage of African Americans. The Black Resource Center provides many services and activities that include:

  • In-depth reference service to specialized researchers and to the general public
  • Cultural awareness programs such as Juneteenth, Kwanzaa and Black History Month celebrations
  • Promotional materials and displays for programs and activities in support of African American heritage and multiculturalism
  • Community outreach and networking with other organizations and institutions

Black History Month is celebrated every year during the month of February. For more information please visit our Black History Month page.
