Black Queer Studies

The Black Queer Studies Collection supports teaching, learning, and research through the PhD level in African and African Diaspora Studies, English Literature, Women’s and Gender/LGBTQ Studies, and other related fields.

The collection began by adding in most of the materials listed in Carry the Word: A Bibliography of Black LGBTQ Books, compiled by Steven G. Fullwood, Reginald Harris, and Lisa C. Moore (Redbone Press/Vintage Entity Press 2007). The collection focuses on works of scholarship, fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and film by Black queer authors and engaged in Black Queer Studies.

English is the primary language of the collection, with a focus on literature and film from the United States, Africa and the African Diaspora, the Caribbean, and Western Europe.

The collection is co-developed with Dr. Matt Richardson, faculty member in African and African Diaspora Studies, English Literature, and Women’s and Gender/LGBTQ Studies.
