NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee State Library and Archives is commemorating Black History Month with an expanded version of what state officials say is one of their most popular online exhibits.

"This Honorable Body: African-American Legislators in 19th Century Tennessee" was created in 2006 at the request of the state Legislature's black caucus.

It's dedicated to the 14 African-Americans elected to the Tennessee General Assembly between 1874 and 1887.

The updated exhibit will feature more detailed biographies of each of the early lawmakers and the texts of the bills they sponsored while serving in the General Assembly.

The exhibit is part of the Secretary of State's website and is available at tn.gov/tsla/exhibits/blackhistory/index.htm.
