The Kentuckiana Digital Library serves as a gateway to multiple digital collections based on the history and culture of Kentucky. Providing access to thousands of newspapers, books, images, maps, oral histories, manuscripts, and journals, the project is a tremendous resource for those interested in Kentucky and the Appalachian region.
This digital collection features selections from the work of Paul Laurence Dunbar. Dunbar (1872-1906) was a prominent African-American writer who composed multiple poems, several books, and a number of libretti. Many have been digitized by Wright State University in Dunbar’s hometown of Dayton, Ohio, along with a bibliography for future reading and a photo gallery.
