"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This book assembles images of African Americans by 50 black photojournalists from across the nation. The editors are photojournalists and broadcast journalists from Washington, D.C. The images are well reproduced and captioned simply, without dates but with geographical location, photographer, and explanatory phrases and paragraphs. Gordon Parks, the first black photographer to work at Life and Vogue and the first black director in Hollywood, contributes a poetic and evocative essay. Four thoughtful essays by black writers and critics introduce thematically arranged sections on the black male; black artists, musicians, performers, filmmakers, athletes, and ministers; black women; and the black family. All the photographs are powerful, memorable, and revealing of black culture, a testament to the skill of the editors and photographers. This is highly recommended for photography, photojournalism, American culture, and African American studies collections.
