This guide is designed to identify library resources that will help students in the HIST 121:The Black Experience course. This course closely examines the influence that people of African descent have had on the development of the United States. It also explores the rich cultural contributions made by African Americans in the areas of music, art, religion, and literature during such periods as the Harlem Renaissance, Black Power Movement, and the contemporary Hip Hop era. The NCC library has a wealth of books, articles, DVDs and online videos that can help you better understand the people and movements that will be studied - and they are outlined for you here!
