"Black Short Fiction and Folklore is the most comprehensive collection yet created of stories from African and the African Diaspora. When complete, it will feature 8,000 stories and folk tales published in more than 15 countries from the mid-1900s to the present. In addition to these published works, the database features previously uncollected works and unpublished manuscripts by many authors. We have an impressive collection of fables and folktales, which arise from oral traditions that date back hundreds of years. Researchers will be able to follow their development in both Africa and the New World. We also have complete runs of selected literary magazines that feature short stories, such as Kyk-Over-Al and The Beacon, as well as many early North American black-owned and edited journals and newspapers. We present these texts in their original languages, including some, like the Gullah language of South Carolina, that have their origins in African countries and are still present in regions far from their source..."
