The Detroit Public Library, encouraged by the positive response to this annual publication, continues the tradition of the African American Booklist for 2012. This bibliography provides a selected list of books by and/or about African Americans. This booklist includes works of fiction and nonfiction for adults, children and young adults reviewed and recommended by librarians of the Detroit Public Library.
The African American Booklist began in February of 1926 to commemorate Negro History Week. Since that time, the booklist has continued to feature the accomplishments of African Americans in the literary world and has become an annual tradition in our community.
This year, we take you on a journey through the years of African American Literature with historic eras and monumental authors and their books.
In addition, the Detroit Public Library would also like to extend a sincere thank you to the Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation for their continued support of the African American Booklist.
