Finding Books
Finding Periodical Articles


Encyclopedias and Dictionaries
Finding Books To find books in Jackson Library it's best to use a keyword search in the Library Catalog . Examples: "african americans and civil rights" or "Greensboro sit-ins." In recent years the term "african american" has become a standard term used for books. For historical topics it is best also to use older terms such as "afro american," "negro," "negroes," and "blacks." Finding Periodical Articles Because African-American Studies is interdisciplinary, you need to use the databases and indexes in the subject area closest to your topic to find journal articles. For example, if you have a literature topic use the English sources; if you have a psychology topic use the Psychology sources. To help choose a database choose a subject from Electronic Databases by Subject.

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
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
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.

Our department will introduce you to African and African-American history, culture and life in general. Although Africa and Afro-America are the major areas of study, due attention is paid to the Caribbean and Latin America. The interdisciplinary major, with its opportunity for fieldwork, encourages students to engage in independent study, if possible, in a Black community. In addition to academic interests, our program will prove useful for professionals whose careers take them to these geographic and cultural areas. Although we do not offer advanced degrees, courses are available to persons working toward an interdisciplinary M.A., Ph.D or other advanced degrees from varied programs.

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.

Professor Belinda Robnett, Director of the Program in African-American Studies at UCI, with U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher's visit to UC Irvine was a resounding success. His visit, as the Chancellor's Distinguished Fellow, would not have been possible without the efforts of the African-American Studies Program. His lecture, which took place on Wednesday, November 28, 2001, emphasized the need for a national healthcare system in an effort to eliminate disparities in health, and to maintain a global approach to public health. Shortly, Surgeon General Dr. Satcher plans to direct a new center, the National Center for Primary Care, at the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta. His focus will continue to be upon greater access to healthcare.
