Extractions: University of West Florida Libraries Traditionally, African-American Studies has focused on the history of Black people in the United States. However, as reflected in the following sources, African-American Studies is highly interdisciplinary, and seeks to acquaint students with trends, issues, and forces that have shaped the Black experience in America. At the same time, such factors as cultural adaptation, institutional development, and group self-definition are examined, while surveying the contemporary status and condition of African-Americans. Many of the following indexes and abstracts, although they are multidisciplinary in scope, contain a wealth of information germane to African-Americans.

Extractions: Collections Overviews Home Master List of Collections Overviews Scope Size General Research Strengths Areas of Distinction ... Weaknesses/Exclusions This overview focuses on the Library's holdings of materials by and about African-Americans. The study of African-Americans (persons of African heritage in the United States) is not just a subset of American studies, but also requires the use of resources relating to the history and literature of Africa and other countries where black people have lived. The collections at the Library are organized in such a way that the African and Middle Eastern Division is responsible for resources relating to the African continent, and the Hispanic Division holds primary responsiibility for Afro-Caribbean resources. The resources represented at the Library include all formats: manuscripts, newspapers, serials, microform, motion pictures, and other genres. The absence of a special African-American collection impedes an accurate estimation of its size. Although no special count has been made of all the subject areas covered by African-American studies, we may roughly estimate the size of the collection at approximately 50,000 books and periodicals, based on a combined count of the African-American history and literature classes, and classes dealing with slavery and the slave trade, the Civil War, and civil rights.

In Reference, the call number ranges starting with E up to F 1199 cover material on North America (including Canada). Biographical reference material is also found in the CT call numbers. Browsing these areas of the Reference collection is useful. Unless a smaller, more specific section is selected, browsing is difficult in the circulating collection. It is not possible to browse formats, such as videos and DVDs, microfilm, microfiche and microcards. Keyword searching in ALEPH, the Libraries' catalog, will generate a variety of material in various formats.

This guide can be used to identify full-text information online, books, newspaper and periodical articles, and encyclopedia entries on this topic. This annotated listing of recommended African-American Web sites was prepared by Elna L. Saxton and Joe McClamroch, and published in the January, 1999 issue of College and Research Libraries News (vol. 60, no. 1). It is organized into five categories: Getting started, Educational sites/research centers, Organizations/associations, Afrocentric sites, and E-journals/news services. In honor of the Library of Congress' Manuscript Division's centennial, its staff selected for online display representative historical documents on eight major themes, each theme covering the papers of prominent Americans whose lives reflect our country's evolution. This site reflects the theme, "African American History and Culture." Like the other theme pages, it consists of an essay containing links to digital reproductions of selected documents. A detailed description accompanies each document. World Book editors have assembled a comprehensive look at the history of African Americans and their struggle for freedom in honor of Black History Month. The articles in this feature were taken from the World Book Multimedia Encyclopedia. There are also numerous links to World Wide Web sites concerning important figures and events in black history, as well as issues surrounding current events.

Extractions: African Americans have played a vital role in the history and culture of their country since its founding. An important part of the curriculum at the Institute for African American Studies is devoted to creative research on the lives and work of prominent African Americans and to placing them within their cultural context. On this page you will find brief biographical sketches of several key figures in African American history. Benjamin Banneker's Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia Almanack and Epheremis, published during the years 1792-1797. He retired from tobacco farming to concentrate wholly upon his studies. He corresponded with Thomas Jefferson and urged Jefferson to work for the abolition of slavery. Sojourner Truth, a nationally known speaker on human rights for slaves and women, was born Isabella Baumfree, a slave in Hurley, New York, and spoke only Dutch during her childhood. Sold and resold, denied her choice in husband, and treated cruelly by her masters, Truth ran away in 1826, leaving all but one of her children behind. After her freedom was bought for $25, she moved to New York City in 1829 and became a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. In 1853, she helped form a utopian community called "The Kingdom," at Sing Sing, New York, which was soon disbanded following the death and possible murder of its leader. Truth was implicated in the scandal but courageously fought the falsehoods aimed at her. After the death of her son, she took the name Sojourner Truth to signify her new role as traveler telling the truth about slavery. She set out on June 1, 1843, walking for miles in a northeasterly direction with 25 cents in her pocket, and rested only when she found lodging offered by either rich or poor. First she attended religious meetings, then began to hold meetings herself that would bring audience members to tears. As she logged mile after mile, her fame grew and her reputation preceded her. Truth's popularity was enhanced by her biography written by the abolitionist Olive Gilbert, with a preface written by William Lloyd Garrison. In 1864, she was invited to the White House, where President Abraham Lincoln personally received her. Later she served as a counselor for the National Freedman's Relief Association, retiring in 1875 to Battle Creek, Michigan.
