I believe you will find that New York Public Library publishes a book
which is a bibliography of books and other materials relating to the
African American experience.

NYPL operates the wonderful Schomberg Collection, and the Countee Cullen
Branch on West 136 St. maintains (or used to) a reference collection of
children's books called the James Weldon Johnson Collection. I'll bet a
call or letter to the Children's Librarian there would prove fruitful.
