Synopsis: Comprises short sketches of the lives of African Americans who made significant contributions in the arts, politics, sports, and religion, among other fields
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5 Up-This easy-to-use guide updates The Biographical Dictionary of Black Americans (Facts On File, 1992). It covers 230 individuals and ranges chronologically from Colonial times to the present and represents many fields of endeavor. The entry on Sally Hemings discusses the latest DNA evidence linking her offspring to Thomas Jefferson. Contemporary scholars, such as Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Cornel West are also included. The additions of Queen Latifah and Tupac Shakur will especially appeal to young people. The black-and-white photographs and drawings are well chosen. All entries include books for further reading, and an extensive list of recommended resources is appended. Indexes organize the listings by area of activity, year of birth, and subject. A worthwhile purchase.
