About this Item

This extraordinary effort to capture and present an encyclopedic view of Black history and culture was on of the major scholarly events among Black historians immediately following World War II. Famous Afro-American scholars who were on the Encyclopedia's Board Of Directors included Alain Locke, Rayford Logan, Benjamin Brawley (Harvard graduates) and many others well-ensconced in the ranks of 20th century Afro-American scholarly achievement, e.g. Monroe Work, Arthur Schomburg and Charles H. Wesley. The inspiring photo of the Board of Directors at the end of the book portrays a who's who among historians, academics and social scientists concerned about documenting the Afro-American experience. The long term effort did not succeed and this scarce volume is all that came of this summit of intellectual titans, making it all the more important as a reminder of the effort to create an authoritative reference.
