While anthologized poems by African Americans have always been indexed by Granger's "RM", the great increase in interest by the general public and the growing number of African American Studies courses have led to the creation of a Granger's "RM" index devoted exclusively to poetry by African Americans.

To compile this Index to African-American Poetry, a team of consultants sought to identify the best, most widely available volumes of poetry by African Americans. The results of their search: 33 anthologies and 32 volumes of collected and selected works.

Like all Granger's "RM" indexes, this newest index is easy to use. The Title, First Line, and Last Line index is arranged alphabetically. The Author Index is arranged alphabetically by poet and, under each name, by poem title. In the Subject Index, authors and their works are listed alphabetically under each subject heading.

It is the fastest, most reliable way to answer such questions as:
-- What are the best anthologies of African-American poetry?
-- What have African-American poets written about such highly charged issues as religion? politics? patriotism? slavery? racism? money? sex? What have they written about Harlem? the civil-rights movement? Martin Luther King Jr.?
-- What did Audre Lorde write about grief? How often?
-- Who wrote the poem "Madam and the Rent Man, " and where can it be found?
