AAS 200: Intro to African-American Studies: Primary Sources

What are primary sources?

Primary (or documentary) sources in African American studies are direct, firsthand accounts of events. Letters, diaries, autobiographies, oral histories, government documents, literary works, speeches, slave narratives, and, in some cases, newspaper articles are examples of primary sources. This page includes African American studies primary-source collections available in Sterne Library. Additional primary-source material may be located by searching the Sterne Library Catalog through OneSearch for specific authors, subjects, or keywords.
