The uniqueness, sweeping content, and timing of Negro Digest/Black World give it enormous historical and scholarly importance. The most influential and widely read Black literary magazine in the 1960s, Negro Digest played a critical role in the era's Black Arts and Black Consciousness movement and is the most complete voice of that movement. Renamed Black World in 1970, the magazine gave voice to scholars coining and developing the concept of Afrocentric and African-centered analysis. An analysis of Afrocentric methods and discourse would not be complete without an examination of this magazine. This reference guide provides easy access to this valuable publication.

Part One includes chapters on Literature and Literary Criticism, History, Mass Media and the Arts, and Social and Political Analysis, which provide annotations on original articles and speeches. Part Two indexes original materials, including poetry, short stories and plays, reviews, and interviews.
