Similar to but much more comprehensive than George Cantor's Historic Landmarks of Black America ( LJ 8/91), this is an excellent state-by-state historical travel guide to black America by a travel editor living in Africa. Background information and descriptions of churches, museums, battle sites, graves, slave markets, and homes of present and past influential black Americans is provided in an easy-to-read alphabetical and geographical format for travelers, students, and researchers. Visit Underground Railroad stops, restored plantations, African villages, jazz museums, the Negro league's baseball museum, and the sites of Nat Turner's insurrection, the Lincoln-Douglas debates, and Uncle Tom's Cabin . Experience a black Mardi Gras celebration and jazz festivals. It's all here, complete with directions, fees, and hours. This book gives readers the chance to explore, learn, and enjoy North America's vast black heritage and history.
