The Black ConditionBook - 2009
Michigan State University Press, ProQuest, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and The New York Public Library are pleased to present a unique research, study, and teaching resource for professors and students of black studies.
In the more than thirty-five years since the field of black studies established its presence in American higher education, the volume of research, writing, and publications on the global black experience has increased exponentially. With the extraordinary volume of research resources on the black experience currently available, the challenge of selecting appropriate materials for research, study, and teaching has become extremely difficult. Schomburg Studies on the Black Experience is a resource designed to assist users in making such choices.
Designed as a resource for both students and professors of African-American studies for the selection of quality study materials, this volume is presented by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and is edited by the Chief (Dodson) and Managing Editor (Palmer). Contributors present major themes of study such as the African diaspora, the response of the African-American community to American political systems and black experiences in both religion and the military. A companion website provides a database for the complete project so that libraries can gain access to recommended study materials and book titles.
