A Bibliography of Black Internationalism

Keisha N. Blain, A Bibliography of Black Internationalism

Over the past several years, I have been conducting research for a book on black nationalism, radical politics, and internationalism during the twentieth century. Last year, I began co-editing a volume on black women’s internationalism with Tiffany M. Gill. Recently, a number of scholars and students have reached out to ask me for suggested readings on the topic. I have compiled a list of secondary works for those who are interested in learning more about the topic; or those who are looking for suggested readings to include in their course syllabi for next year. In an earlier post, I offer suggestions for how to teach black internationalism. The literature on black internationalism (or transnationalism) is extensive so this list is not meant to be exhaustive. Many of the works listed below explore women’s roles and the politics of gender in black internationalist movements. The majority of these works focus primarily on the twentieth century.
