This entry was originally written by Roger D. Joslyn, CG, FUGA, FGBS, FASG in Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources.

Ruth E. Hodge's Guide to African American Resources at the Pennsylvania State Archives (Harrisburg: Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, 2000) replaces an earlier work by David McBride. McBride also edited Blacks in Pennsylvania History: Research and Educational Perspectives (Harrisburg: Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, 1983). Charles L. Blockson, Pennsylvania's Black History (Philadelphia: Portfolio Association, 1975) is another useful work. For other sources, see also the Pennsylvania chapter in ''Black Genesis''.
