African-American and African Pamphlet Collection
The African-American and African Pamphlet Collection consists of 20th century materials on African, African-American, and Caribbean culture and literature. The collection spans the years 1905-1979, although the majority of the pamphlets date from the 1960s and 1970s. The pamphlets are in English, French, and a variety of African languages, such as Swahili, Tsonga, Tswana and Xhosa. Some of the unique publications include a transcript of a 1931 worker's trial by the U. S. Communist Party on a race-related incident, 1970s university studies on integration, and texts of speeches given by American radical leaders and leaders of African countries. The collection was formerly known as the Black Studies Pamphlet Collection and was housed in the McKeldin Library Reference Department. Due to the archival nature of the collection, it was transferred to Special Collections. The collection is arranged alphabetically by subject.
