Abstract:

The Michel Fabre archives of African American arts and letters consist of correspondence, writings, and printed material relating to expatriate writers, artists, musicians, and cultural figures, as well as Fabre's personal and business correspondence, works authored by Fabre, research files, conference materials, photographs, and audiovisual materials. The largest segment of the collection contains papers related to the work of African American writers, musicians, and artists from the United States and the Caribbean and of expatriates living in France. Included are works by writers such as Gwendolyn Brooks, Horace Cayton, James Emanuel, Chester Himes, Langston Hughes, and Richard Wright. Materials include items such as letters, typescripts, manuscripts, printed material, and personal materials. An avid collector, Fabre acquired many manuscripts as well as rare books. The rich collection of materials related to Chester Himes stems both from his personal friendship with the Himes family and his acquisition of Himes's publisher's files from Yves Malartic. He also acquired the library of Rene Maran, which is now at Emory. The collection's second series contains a wide range of general correspondence, written to Fabre by friends, colleagues, and publishers, while the third series represents a broad scope of Fabre's published works. Included are reprints of articles Fabre published in numerous French and American scholarly journals, as well as reviews of his work and early drafts of some pieces. An additional strength of the collection is the numerous conference programs and conference related material preserved by Fabre and relating to conferences he participated in or organized. Also included are many of Fabre's research files, materials he collected relating to Richard Wright, and a substantial number of photographs of Wright as well as numerous other writers and artists.
