Africana and Black Studies


Welcome to the Africana and Black Studies research guide. Resources on this guide deal with the study of all aspects of Africa and Africans, African Americans, the African Diaspora, black studies in general, and race studies.

There will be a mix of physical and online library resources including journals, newspapers, primary sources, books and ebooks, streaming media, as well as publicly available online websites.

For assistance with finding resources, please ask a librarian in the chat box in the right-hand column. For more in-depth help, contact the Africana Liaison Librarian, Liz Svoboda.
