Excellent and pretty exhaustive guide to African-Americana poetry: Afro-American Poetry and Drama, 1760-1975: A Guide to Information Sources by William P. French, Michel J. Fabre, Amritjit Singh, and Geneviève E. Fabre. On several occasions we tried to buy Mr. French's own greatly updated copy of this bibliography, which he would coyly suggest might be had, but he inconveniently passed away before we could pry it out of him.
