Welcome to the African American Studies Subject Guide! This guide highlights websites, books, journals and other scholarly sources useful to those studying African American Studies.
When researching African American communities or topics be aware that historically the label "African American" is not the only one ever used to describe them. Currently both African American and Black are used to describe and research these groups. Other historic terms used are: colored and Negro. To complicate things, Black Latina/os may also refers to themselves as Afro-Latinos or Afro-[ethnicity], e.g. Afro-Cuban. Keep this in mind while creating your research question and developing keywords to research them in our databases and catalogs.
