The African-American and African Pamphlet Collection
is part of the Rare Book Collection located in the Maryland Room in Hornbake Library. It 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
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.
