Where can I find books that define "endorsement"?

I have a question (actually it comes from my Junior English class): Why does the Library of Congress not select an African-American male poet? There are a number of influential ones out there (Yusef Komunyaaka's name comes to mind), yet the listing of laureates seems to lack this dimension. When a student was teaching about Rita Dove, one of her peers asked when was she the poet laureate & when informed it was during Clinton's administration remarked, "It figures." Thank you for having the Poets Laureate available on-line. I am going to change my poetry assignment next year to take advantage of this resource.
