Note that this is a 1987 archival document and should not be used without further verification.
Since the Project's founding in 1983, HBW's mission has been to:
- Identify texts that have been lost to history and advocate for their return.
- Promote the awareness of the works by African American authors.
- Create opportunities for learning about and engaging them.
This archival database displays our holdings by decade. Our current collection holds nearly 4,000 well-known and lesser-known novels by African American writers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in the updated HBW corpus. Are you using our Novel Collections in your research or teaching? We’d love to hear about it.
