African-American Fiction: A Slamming Genre.
Brown, Vandella
American Libraries, v28 n10 p48-50 Nov 1997
Once submerged in general fiction, African-American novels now have an authorship and readership to match other genres. This article examines the need for a separate genre section, African-American novels and writers, African-American collections in public libraries, African-American book clubs, book lists, and effects on mainstream publishing. Includes guidelines for creating an African-American genre collection. (PEN)
