Black Book Publishers in the United States: A Historical Dictionary of the Presses, 1817-1990 written by Donald Franklin Joyce

 

Black Book Publishers in the United States: A Historical Dictionary of the Presses, 1817-1990 written by Donald Franklin Joyce

Synopsis:

This book offers the first extensive look at Black-owned publishing companies from 1817 to 1990, and reveals previously unknown facts about the contributions of Blacks to Western civilization.

Library Journal

This dictionary provides informative and readable histories of 46 black-owned publishing companies. Each profile contains information on the company's publications, lists of libraries holding them, bibliographies containing sources on the companies, and the names of officers and addresses for current organizations. Joyce's earlier work, Gatekeepers of Black Culture: Black-Owned Book Publishing in the United States, 1817-1961 (Greenwood, 1983), profiled 68 companies in its lengthy appendix and covered the history of the industry in its main text. All but four of the companies included here were cited in this earlier work, leaving one to wonder why the current work is not more comprehensive. Still, the book is of interest to public and academic libraries with collections in black history and culture.-- Marie F. Jones, Muskingum Coll. Lib., New Concord, Ohio
