  • The St. James Guide to Black Artists, published in 1997, contains information on almost four hundred black artists from around the world. At the time, the Guide was a unique publication as it covered a significant number of artists and provided short critical essays accompanying each entry. Seventy-two contributors wrote entries, among them Terry Bain, Diedre Bibby, Harry Henderson, and Leo Twiggs. Edited by Thomas Riggs, the Guide was created in association with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. The advisory board included Howard Dodson, David C. Driskell, Edmund Barry Gaither, Leslie King-Hammond, Samella Lewis, Richard A. Long, and Richard J. Powell. There is currently only one edition of the Guide in publication.
