  1. I made a LCDGT proposal for People of color in 2016, but it still hasn’t been put onto a monthly list (LC has a big backlog of our LCDGT proposals). Here’s what it looks like in the online proposal system:

For “minorities,” the top-ranked year was 1997. Since then, the term has steadily declined but continues to significantly outstrip the use of “people of color,” which reached its apex in 2003; Martin Luther King Jr. referred to “citizens of color” in his speech at the 1963 March on Washington; People of color is a phrase encompassing all nonwhites. When used by whites, people of color usually carries a friendly and respectful connotation, but should not be used as a synonym for black; it refers to all racial groups that are not white; “Person of color” is a useful term, because defining someone by a negative–nonwhite or other than white–seems silly; the term seems to be replacing “minorities,” which makes sense, since minorities can be a demographic inaccuracy. In U.S. history, “person of color” has often been used to refer only to people of African heritage. Today, it usually covers all/any peoples of African, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, Asian or Pacific Island descent, and its intent is to be inclusive)
    670 $a Encyclopedia of race, ethnicity, and society, ©2008: $b People of Color (The phrase “people of color” (and “person of color”) refers to racial and ethnic minority groups; “People of color” is a term most often used outside of traditional academic circles, often infused by activist frameworks, but it is slowly replacing terms such as “racial and ethnic minorities”; non-Whites; non-White people; in the U.S. in particular, there is a trajectory to the term–from more derogatory terms such as “negroes,” to “colored,” to “people of color.” (The term “colored,” however, has a different meaning in other countries such as South Africa); “people of color” is an all-inclusive term that incorporates African Americans, Latinas/os, Asians and Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans)
    670 $a Wikipedia, Apr. 25, 2016: $b Person of color (Person of color (plural: people of color, persons of color, sometimes abbreviated POC) is a term used primarily in the United States to describe any person who is not white. The term encompasses all non-white groups, emphasizing common experiences of racism. The term’s use is reminiscent of “colored”, which was previously used in the US as a term for African Americans only. In the late 20th century, it was introduced in the United States as a preferable replacement to both non-white and minority, which are also inclusive, because it frames the subject positively; non-white defines people in terms of what they are not (white), and minority frequently carries a subordinate connotation. Style guides for writing from American Heritage, the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Mount Holyoke College, recommend the term over these alternatives. It may also be used with other collective categories of people such as students of color, men of color and women of color. Person of color typically refers to individuals of non-Caucasian heritage)
    670 $a The American Heritage guide to contemporary usage and style, ©2005: $b person of color (Dissatisfaction with nonwhite as a racial label may have contributed to the recent popularity of terms formed with the phrase of color, as in person of color, women of color, communities of color, and even such ad hoc groupings as journalists of color or educators of color. The two terms are synonymous, but where nonwhite identifies by means of a negative and implies exclusion from a European commonality, of color substitutes a positive and emphasizes inclusion in a diverse group of peoples from the rest of the world. There are those who find these phrases awkward or who dismiss them as politically correct jargon. But of color labels rarely give true offense, and in instances where reference to race or skin color is relevant, many people now prefer them to nonwhite or other loosely equivalent labels such as minority or Third World. person of color / colored: The term people of colour is first cited in The Oxford English Dictionary in 1796, and, like colored, it was originally used in reference to light-skinned people of mixed African and European heritage as distinct from fullblooded Africans. But after the Civil War colored was increasingly adopted as a label for Black Americans in general, regardless of skin shade or ancestry, and was long used with pride in the Black community before eventually losing favor in the mid-20th century In current American English, colored is viewed as dated and often offensive in referring to Black Americans. But no such stigma is attached to person of color and its variants, which are almost never used today in referring exclusively to African Americans. Instead, they are used inclusively of all non-European peoples–often with the assumption that there is a political and even cultural solidarity among them–and are virtually always considered terms of pride and respect.)
    670 $a Oxford dictionaries online, Apr. 25, 2016 $b (person of color (also man of color, woman of color) noun A person who is not white or of European parentage. Usage: The term person of color is first recorded at the end of the 18th century. It was revived in the 1990s as the recommended term to use in some official contexts, especially in US English, to refer to a person who is not white. The term has become increasingly common in the US, but it still may not be familiar to all audiences; terms such as nonwhite may be used as an alternative. See also black (usage), colored, and nonwhite; nonwhite noun A person whose origin is not predominantly European. Usage: The term nonwhite has been objected to on the grounds that it assumes that the norm is white. However, although alternatives such as person of color have begun to be used more widely in recent years, they may not be appropriate in all contexts. Nonwhite continues to be broadly accepted where a collective term is required to show a distinction, as in statistical or demographic categories. See also person of color)

    1. Wow. That is some amazing work, thank you for replying. I think I’ll hold off on the LCSH until that is resolved, see what the fine folks at LoC say about LCDGT. And again, that is some really impressive scholarship, kudos!
