Bobby Vaughn's Black Mexico - further reading

Bobby Vaughn

This is a list of 17 sources in Spanish and English dealing with black Mexicans from a variety of perspectives. I chose these few sources from a large bibliography that I have been compiling since 1992, hoping that these works will not be too difficult to find. A good university library should have most of the works. I may be changing this list from time to time as I come across more sources. Enjoy!
