More than 50 years ago, back when the prevailing postulate was that the Negro had no real history, historian and author Aptheker began trudging among the pioneers, tracking, gathering, and assembling obscure or inaccessible firsthand testimony by blacks on the breadth and depth of the African American experience. In 1951, after 15 years, the first fruits of his labor appeared, covering the years from 1661 to 1910. The 160 documents in the present volume-announced as the final installment of what has become a classic-bring the series within a generation of the present. Dealing with a more contemporary time and an era of mass publications, it is narrower in scope and has less manuscript material, commentary, and explanation than earlier volumes, but it adds handsomely to the rich record and offers a helpful bibliography on issues and events. This entire series is essential for any collection with even a pretense of dealing with U.S. or African American history. Highly recommended.
