Black Studies Links, Spring 2005

I will be updating this list of links over the rest of the semester. My aim is to be selective and choose the most useful sites for context and research. This list represents only the tip of the iceberg; to get a sense of the range of pages out there on the various authors and topics related to this course, I highly recommend that you search on your own by going to any web search engine (I think google is the absolute best for looking up specific things, although hotbot and teoma are also pretty good; yahoo!, excite, infoseek, and lycos are good if you want an overview of what's out there). Please email me with suggestions for additions to this list at simon@fredonia.edu.
