  • Introduction
      General Colonial Period Through the Civil War Reconstruction to the Present
    In honor of Black History Month, the New York State Library is issuing An African-American Bibliography: History. The bibliography lists selected resources of the New York State Library that document and comment on the experience of African Americans in the history of the United States. In addition to primary sources and significant historical works, the bibliography contains references to bibliographies and research aids. Although the bibliography covers the African-American experience from the colonial period to the present, it emphasizes the post World War II period and the civil rights movement that followed the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. The bibliography includes the major civil rights legislation of the past three decades, records the voices of African-American activism and protest, and illustrates the impact African-American voters and political candidates have had on the electoral process. The bibliography also focuses on the work of African-American historians and social scientists, including not only classic texts by John Hope Franklin and Carter G. Woodson, the "Father of Black History," but also works by William Junius Wilson and Shelby Steele that reflect current African-American debate on social policy.

Booker T. Washington
author of: Up From Slavery
About the Author
In 1881 Washington left Virginia for Alabama, to establish the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute. The school opened on July 4, 1881, with one teacher and thirty pupils. Through skillful management, tireless fund-raising, and shrewd diplomacy with whites, he built Tuskegee, literally brick by brick, into the top black trade school in the country. Like his mentor, General Armstrong, Washington made sure that all skills and academic courses taught at Tuskegee had practical application in the economy of the postwar South. A pragmatist, not an idealist, he endorsed the Puritan virtue of self-help, maintaining, "the individual who can do something that the world wants done will, in the end, make his way regardless of his race." Washington's well-known success as an educator led to his being asked to speak on racial issues. In 1895 he delivered opening remarks at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta. In the now-famous Atlanta Compromise Address, Washington urged blacks to postpone their demands for equal rights and focus instead on improving themselves through education, industriousness, and racial solidarity. "In all things that are purely social we can be as separate as the fingers, yet one as the hand in all things essential to mutual progress," he stated. The following year Washington became the first black to receive an honorary Master of Arts degree from Harvard University.

    "The contribution made by Blacks to American art is little known to the general public. This book remedies the lack of information and surprises by the African American's vigour in expression and talent. . . . An artistic explosion occurred in the mid-twentieth century, whichproduced some outstandingly good paintings and sculptures. This book is based on serious research, with a seven page bibliography and detailed index." (Eva L. Meyerowitz, Apollo)
    "A historically solid survey of African American art." (Choice)
    Author Bio:
    Samella Lewis is Emerita Professor of Art History, Scripps College, and author of The Art of Elizabeth Catlett
    From the Publisher:
    Beginning with the arts produced in the Colonial period, Dr. Lewis documents and interprets the flow of creative productions of an important segment of the American population. Her book shows that the range of art produced by African American artists covers the entire spectrum of craft production through painting, sculpture, and printmaking. There is a progressive development of style that not only reflects the trends in particluar periods, but reveals an evolving pattern of indigenous qualities that are distinct.
