A Bibliography of Black Internationalism, Part II
The scholarship on Black internationalism has grown in leaps and bounds since my first reading list on the topic–originally published on this site in April 2015. It is difficult to keep up with the amazing work being produced in the field but I certainly try to stay abreast of all the new books–as well as new articles and dissertations–on the subject. The new book series on Black internationalism, which I am editing with Quito Swan for the University of Illinois Press, will no doubt play a significant role in the continual growth of this important field of study. The first publication in the series, scheduled for release in Spring 2019, is a volume I co-edited on Black women’s internationalism. This volume will add to the list of recent and innovative works below, which highlight the global dimensions of the Black freedom struggle.
