MEDIA REVIEWS
"A great introduction to black history." - School Library Journal
"This two-volume set provides a concise history of the African American presence from colonial times to the present. Rather than consisting of traditional encyclopedia entries, the set is made up of alphabetically arranged chapters devoted to each state as well as the District of Columbia. The clearly and concisely written chapters contain the same sections: "Chronology," "Historical Overview," "Notable African Americans," "Cultural Contributions," and "Bibliography." . . . Overall, this would be a useful addition for high-school and academic libraries." - Booklist
"Each state entry in this two-volume set is prefaced with a time line that highlights important events. The concise yet rich historical overview that follows expands on these events and themes, tracing the black experience from slavery to the present. . . . Each entry concludes with a comprehensive bibliography that highlights resources specific to the state, making this an excellent resource for those looking for an introduction to the black experience across the nation. Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice
