African American In Defense of the Nation, A Bibliography. Scarecrow Press, 2011. 423 pp. Original boards. (Few ink notations) Brignano, Russell.

Duke University Press, 1974. 118 pp. Original cloth in dust jacket. (Jacket chipped especially at spine tips) “Voice of the Negro”, an Atlanta publication, was the first African-American periodical based in the South. It was an important early 20th c. literary vehicle for young Black intellectuals, including W. E. B.DuBois, Kelly Miller, Mary Church Terrell, James Corrothers and Paul Laurence Dunbar. Controvich’s comprehensive and invaluable work catalogues the Black experience in the US Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard, from the Revolutionary to the Vietnam and Iraq, including divisions by military units. The Brignano bibliography spans more than a century of Black autobiography, from Solomon Northrup, William Wells Brown, Frederick Douglass and Henry Flipper to Booker T. Washington, Jack Johnson, W. E. B. DuBois, Richard Wright Dorothy Dandridge, Eldridge Cleaver, Coretta King and Shirley Chisholm, including many obscure titles by less notable writers.
