Lee -English To: AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Subject: Resources on Black Slang I teach English at Hampton University, Hampton, Virginia. I am currently researching information on black slang/black verbal expressions for my dissertation topic on the borrowing of black verbal expressions by the mainstream print media. I would appreciate your help in suggesting resources that I may consult that would document the legitimacy of certain black slang expressions, that is, would identify them as having been created and used by African-Americans before passing into mainstream use. Thank you for whatever assistance you can give me in this area. Sincerely, Margaret G.
