Description
Focusing on the making of modern African American society, from the 1896 "separate but equal" ruling of Plessy v. Ferguson up to the contemporary period, this five-volume encyclopedia traces the transition from the Reconstruction Era to the age of Jim Crow, the Harlem Renaissance, the Great Migration, the Brown v. Board of Education ruling that overturned Plessy, the Civil Rights Movement, and the ascendant influence of African American culture. Each of the 1200 entries provides cross-references and bibliographies, and the encyclopedia includes 500 black and white illustrations and 640 biographies of key figures, as well as entries on developments in each of the 50 states.

"No similar encyclopedia rivals the wealth and confirmation of African American history found here.... It belongs in all large public libraries and all academic libraries."Library Journal (starred review)
