The Negro in the United States; A Selected Bibliography.
Porter, Dorothy A., Comp.
This selected bibliography (with brief annotations) on the Negro in the United States is based mainly on sources in the Library of Congress. Among the topics covered are the urban Negro, relations between the races, discriminatory practices in all areas, and efforts to obtain political and economic freedom, as well as the education and cultural history of the Negro, his religious life, the social conditions under which he lives, and his historical past. Included are works depicting the lives of outstanding Negroes--abolitionists, fugitive slaves, educators, civil rights leaders, scientists, journalists, religious leaders, artists, athletes, and literary figures. The selection of many of the titles, especially in the fields of literature and history, was based on the frequency of requests for particular works in large library collections on the Negro, and on their inclusion in the numerous bibliographies and reading lists now being compiled for use in colleges. While some books written especially for children and young people are included, and some of the other publications cited are well adapted to their use, no systematic effort was made to represent material of this type.
