Handbook of Black librarianship by E. J Josey( Book )
8 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 366 libraries worldwide
E. J. Josey and Marva DeLoach have compiled a treasure trove of information about black librarianship. This volume includes history, statistics, and documentation of contemporary issues related both to African American participation in librarianship and to the organizations that they built to provide information resources for their people. Of interest to all librarians, bibliophiles, bibliographers, and students of American culture, this handbook fills a niche in American cultural history. Like the first edition, published in 1977, this new edition chronicles the history and achievements of black librarians in their chosen profession. Chapters documenting pioneering individuals and events are juxtaposed with historical descriptions of early professional organizations. Other sections provide important information related to diversity, including the language of diversity and salient statistical facts about African American librarians. New or revised chapters treat issues related to information technology and electronic resources, library services to African Americans, and library education. Of special interest is the section on African American resources, which covers archival and fugitive literature, library holdings, literature, oral history programs, and museums, with several chapters on awards. A complete section is devoted to the important issue of health sciences libraries and blacks. Another new section covers libraries, library education, and publishing in Africa. The final section highlights the role of African Americans in selected areas of the knowledge industry
The black and white of it by Ann Allen Shockley( Book )
5 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
A magnificent collection of stories that bravely and honestly explore issues of race, class, sex, love, and being lesbian in America. Ann Allen Shockley's work has been widely praised for its honest portrayals of lesbian life, and now the author takes an even closer look at the singular world of women in love. But the stories that make up The Black and White of It address much more than simply the female gay experience: They cast a brilliant light on race issues and prejudice, on the emotional barriers that divide women and men, on the polarizing distinctions of class and culture, and on family as a force for both good and ill. These are powerful stories of love and desire, intolerance and denial. Here, a bright, vivacious young coed attempts to bring light and love back into the sad life of a lonely middle-aged English professor. An ambitious African American congresswoman refuses to admit the truth about her sexuality, thereby jeopardizing her very special--and secret--relationship with her devoted female assistant. Shockley plunges the reader into the eye of the storm when a gay black woman brings her white lover home to meet the family on Thanksgiving. Whether exploring the ugly, deep-seated prejudice living under the surface of an academic lesbian community, relating the antebellum tale of a southern female plantation owner mesmerized by her newly acquired slave girl, or recalling the sweet, sensual awkwardness of a first date, Ann Allen Shockley writes with unabashed truthfulness, poignancy, and insight. Her stories will long be remembered by gay and straight readers alike

Myrtle Black was in Nashville to preach at a revival. An evangelist who gloried in her charismatic power over her devoted following, she was a born leader. And when two black prostitutes are shot by an unknown assistant, her rage for justice provokes a violent confrontation that could cost her life... but would unite women of all colors and all kinds. Travis Lee was in Nashville to cut her next hit record. For her, it was just another stop in a life of drugs and booze and the wrong kind of men. Myrtle would change all that. When they fell in love. But what price would the world make them pay for their love? Would Myrtle's following turn away from her in scorn? Would Travis' career be destroyed? Suddenly nothing was more important to them than their love. Whatevery the consequences, they had to be true to themselves and to each other. -- back cover
A handbook for the administration of special Negro collections by Ann Allen Shockley( Book )
3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 38 libraries worldwide
Many of the instant black collections are being stocked with reprints and administered by persons not knowledgeable in the field of black history, black books or black people. This study attempts to provide an initial basis that will be strengthened by the experiences of trial and error and the growing need of librarians for a criteria in administering black collections. The course includes the function of the Negro Collection in the instructional program, planning for services to Black Studies Programs, Afri-American Studies Programs and other special curricular programs, services to the community, the preparations of grant proposals, budgeting, and coordinating activities with other library functions. The Special Negro Collection in the Fisk University Library is used as a laboratory. (Author/NH)
