African American Print Culture: A Conversation with James Danky

Last month Kim Gallon, founder and director of the Black Press Research Collective (BPRC) and assistant professor of history at Muhlenberg College, interviewed James Danky, editor of African-American Newspapers and Periodicals: A National Bibliography and cofounder of the Center for the History of Print Culture.

Among the topics discussed in their half-hour conversation are the alternative press; the research value of African American serials; the University of Wisconsin’s collection of black newspapers and periodicals; Danky’s effort to create a national bibliography; its transformation of research capabilities in African American studies and related fields; the two Readex digital collections based upon Danky’s work; and many others.
