Video: Update on The Premier Website for Black Books is a massive, feature rich, website.  Many visitors don’t appreciate the site’s size and scope, so I created this video to help describe some of what has to offer.

I also describe some of the recent enhancements which have been added as a result of the upgrade we started last year.


Troy D. Johnson is the President, founder and webmaster of, LLC (The African American Literature Book Club). Launched in March of 1998, has grown to become the largest and most frequently visited website dedicated to books and films by and about people of African descent.

    An excellent and comprehensive presentation. If I only had one bookmark on my bar it would be AALBC. The video helped me navigate the site and appreciate it more. Because it is such a massive site (and I’m interested in pretty much everything) I sometimes found the site a bit overwhelming, but now that you broke it down I can see several different ways of approaching the content. So thanks. MissDaisy

    • Thanks for taking the time to leave the comments and kinds words @daisybrownherndon:disqus You might find it surprising that I actually leave quite a bit out 🙂 If you ever have a comment about something you’d like to see on the website or room for improvement please do not hesitate to share it. Thanks again!
