New digital resource: Black Women Writers (Alexander St. Press)

Black Women Writers  is a digitized collection of more than 100000 pages put together by  Alexander Street Press.  Access is available through the Yorku Library system (sorry, it’s not universal) and has an amazing range of items, historical and contemporary.  I am particularly interested in the range of non fiction Caribbean items (e.g. Writing Rage: Unmasking Violence Through Caribbean Discourse, by Paula Morgan and Valerie Youssef. (Kingston, Jamaica: University of the West Indies, 2006))  but the fiction titles are very tempting. Poetry too!
