Black Short Fiction and Folklore from Africa and the African Diaspora

Full-text of stories, fables and folktales, including previously uncollected works and unpublished manuscripts by a wide variety of authors. Also includes complete runs of selected literary magazines that feature short stories, such as Kyk-Over-Al and The Beacon, as well as many early North American black-owned and edited journals and newspapers. Texts are in their original languages, including some, like the Gullah language of South Carolina, that have their origins in African countries and are still present in regions far from their source. When complete, the database will feature 8,000 stories and folk tales published in more than 15 countries from the mid-1900s to the present.
