Black Studies and African Studies: Finding Articles

Black/African Studies

Getting Started

Black Studies and African Studies are interdisciplinary topics, encompassing the history, arts, sociology, politics, and economics of the people of Africa and the African Diaspora (which means the people of African descent who now live around the world.)   Because Black Studies and African Studies are concerned with so many different types of topics, you must choose the databases you use carefully. Click on the tabs above and look carefully at the descriptions before you choose a database.

Research Help

If you need help with your history research, sign up for a one-on-one Student Research Consultation (SRC) with a reference librarian who can help guide you through your research project.
