As we approach February and Black History Month, we’re highlighting the African American Literature Book Club.

Founder and webmaster Troy Johnson compiles Books, Authors, Events, Resources, Discussion, Blog, Book Club, and Articles to help you fill in the gaps in your knowledge about all things African American.  In the most recent email, you’ll find articles about Lynch Law in America by Ida B. Wells, 86 African-American History Books, and African American Literature Begins with the Slave Narrative.
