African American Literature

About the Guide and How to Ask for Help

Welcome to the African American Literature research guide. 

In this guide, you will find a diverse array of resources that will help you study for African American Literature. Many of these resources are available to Mason users through subscription or are freely available online, however others will need to be requested from the library via an interlibrary loan request so that we can obtain it for you. 

Please contact Young-Joo for further help with finding. 

A lot of resources are presented in this guide, yet, there are countless other resources available. Therefore, you need to learn how to find resources on your own whether you are searching for an author or researching a particular literary movement. To do so, pay attention to the search strategies suggested throughout the guide.

If you need help with search, please contact your subject librarian, Young-Joo Lee via email at to ask questions or schedule a Zoom or in-person consultation. Young-Joo's office is located in the Fenwick Library on the 2nd floor (Room 2201).
