This research guide was created as an introduction to queer African American writers. This guide spotlights works in our collection by LGBTQ+ African American authors and features pages dedicated to writers James Baldwin, Roxane Gay, Audre Lorde, and Alice Walker to highlight their contributions to American literature. Below, you will find a collection of fiction available to check out at Eden's Library as well background information on the intersectionality of queer and Black identities. On each "Featured Writers" page, you will find biographical information about each author, works by each author that are available to check out, literary criticisms, and more. Happy researching!
