Rate this:
A comprehensive, up-to-date (presidential candidate Bill Clinton is shown playing sax on Arsenio) examination of the history, lives, and contributions of African Americans in 2,900 alphabetical entries (and 1,500 illustrations) on people, places, organizations, laws, cultural movements, vocabulary, economics, entertainment, professions, religion, food, family life, politics, military activity, and other aspects of life in which African Americans play an integral role. The final volume includes not only an extensive topical bibliography, a list of (profiled) people by profession, and a comprehensive index, but also five lists featuring information on African American-owned businesses; African American newspapers, journals, magazines, and other publications; African American-owned television and radio stations; African American colleges and universities; and research centers and libraries devoted to the preservation and study of African American history and culture. For middle school, high school, public, and family libraries, but not insulting to the more sophisticated. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
