African American Authors for Children

African American authors have made significant contributions to the world of children's literature.  The work of these talented writers is often recognized by the Coretta Scott King Award.  However, the importance and impact of their work cannot be captured by the King Award alone.

This guide provides information about some of the most significant African American authors with direct links to a selection of their books in the San Antonio Public Library catalog.  While this listing has been created as part of SAPL's Black History Month observance, these books deserve our attention year round.
