It is important that the school curricula be representative of the diversity of the American student population. Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom is designed to help teachers and librarians achieve that goal. The book recommends and annotates more than 200 titles that touch on African American life from slavery through the present time, most of them by black authors, and many of them winners of the Coretta Scott King, Caldecott, and/or Newbery awards.

This guide offers cross-curricular lesson plans for grades K–12. Each chapter identifies areas in which instructional attention is most needed to help students develop a greater appreciation for diversity, perseverance, and ethnicity. Examples and ideas for activities are offered to reinforce related concepts. With this book, teachers and librarians will be better able to motivate and inform, helping students discover the richness of African American culture now and through time.

Read Detailed Book Description

The field of African Diaspora studies is rapidly growing. Until now there was no single, authoritative source for information on this broad, complex discipline. Drawing on the work of over 300 scholars, this encyclopedia fills that void. Now the researcher, from high school level up, can go to a single reference for information on the historical, political, economic, and cultural relations between people of African descent and the rest of the world community.

Five hundred years of relocation and dislocation, of assimilation and separation have produced a rich tapestry of history and culture into which are woven people, places, and events. This authoritative, accessible work picks out the strands of the tapestry, telling the story of diverse peoples, separated by time and distance, but retaining a commonality of origin and experience. Organized in A-Z sections covering global topics, country of origin, and destination country, the work is designed for easy use by all.
