In essays written by scholars from the fields of history, literature, religion, political science, sociology, psychology, music, and religion, the book spotlights the historiographical trends associated with the evolving study of African American life and history. Students and scholars, as well as general readers, will find the guide to be a useful tool in identifying secondary materials for study, class use, and scholarly research.

Compared to the early decades of the 20th century, when scholarly writing on African Americans was limited to a few titles on slavery, Reconstruction, and African American migration, the last thirty years have witnessed an explosion of works on the African American experience. With the Civil Rights and Black Power movements of the 1960s came an increasing demand for the study and teaching of African American history followed by the publication of increasing numbers of titles on African American life and history. This volume provides a comprehensive bibliographical and analytical guide to this growing body of literature as well as an analysis of how the study of African Americans has changed.
