This resource guide was created from the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign led by Marley Dias who has now collected over 4000 books. The guide includes some of those books that have been catalogued into an easy to find database. This information here is appropriate for youth, parents, educators, schools, and libraries.
This bibliography was created by graduate students in the School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The list is consistently updated and arranged by a variety of subjects.
Created by a librarian, this site allows you to search by such things as suggested age of reader, gender of protagonist, and format, to see only award-winning books. Books are annotated by the creator, Lisa R. Bartle.
