The terms used to describe people of African descent have evolved over time. This LibGuide uses African American and Black in its description. While African American and Black are often used interchangeably in popular discourse, Black is also considered to be a more expansive term than African American, as it can be used to refer to others in the African diaspora beyond those born or based in the United States.
Listed here are sources that may be helpful to consider when writing and researching African American and Black Studies.
