African American Literature
Having its origins in the slave narratives and the folktales transmitted orally during that period, the literature of the African American has been rich and varied. Beginning with the first published work of fiction ( Clotel; Or, the President's Daug hter ) in 1853, continuing under the influence of W.E.B. Du Bois during the first part of this century, and reaching a flowering during the Harlem Renaissance, major contributions have been made to American literature. Today African American writers , such as Toni Morrison, Alex Haley, and Maya Angelou are recognized as among the most significant and popular authors in this country. The following topics are the major divisions in this section dealing with African American literature in general. If you are more interested in a specific genre, go to the bottom of this page. Go to speeches of African Americans if you want to find a recording of a speech.

    African American Read-In
    The 2004 African American Read-In will be on Sunday, February 1 and Monday, February 2, 2004. Did you know . . . nearly a billion people in the world can't read and write and that fifteen percent of the people in countries like ours (America), approximately 44 million Americans age 16 and older are what they call functionally illiterate? This means that all these people are doomed to lives of poverty.
    Why should you care?
    Low literacy limits life chances, regardless of how it is defined or measured. Basic skills and literacy abilities are widely viewed as necessary preconditions for lifelong learning and the development of human capital among individuals, families, communities, and even nations. Indeed the social costs of low levels of literacy can be substantial: these include higher rates of incarceration, welfare dependency, and medical costs associated with malnutrition, illness, and infant mortality. Even within developed nations, low levels of literacy represent a potential threat to the economic well being of individuals and society.

    In American literature, the greatest breadth and depth of the Library's collections probably lies in its classified holdings. This overview, therefore, emphasizes those holdings while referring secondarily to manuscript, recorded, and microform, and other related formats and materials.
    A 1989 survey showed the Library's collections in the classification for American literature numbered approximately 116,000 titles, more than twice as many as the other eighteen large U.S. university libraries surveyed. In addition the Library's holdings include well over 200,000 titles classed as fiction in English, most of which are American works. The Library holds several hundred bibliographies in American literature, as well as numerous additional bibliographies relating to American literature in other areas (drama, fiction, general literature, and individual authors). Finally, many thousands of works of literary significance are classed as general interest magazines, as poetry, drama, and in other parts of the cataloged collections.
    The main strength of the Library's collections in American literature is comprehensiveness. It has long been the Library's policy to collect all monographs by American authors whose writings are generally regarded as having literary merit, as representing important trends in serious creative writing, or as presenting significant criticism and discussion of literature, and all periodicals whose contents consist principally of these writings. Manuscript materials relating to American literature feature the papers of Walt Whitman and include those of other authors representative of nineteenth- and twentieth-century literary movements, forms, and points of view. Several microform collections supplement the Library's print materials relating to American literature, particularly for early and nineteenth-century books and periodicals.

    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.
