Encyclopedia of African American Society by Gerald David Jaynes

Book Description

"The Encyclopedia of African American Society" is the first comprehensive and accessible reference set in this field to give voice to the turbulent trends, past and present that are often ignored in favor of mere facts. Although numerous biographical, chronological and bibliographical reference works exist, none seeks to capture, in a single set, the ways in which the tenets and foundations of African American culture have given rise to today's society. This two-volume encyclopedia fills the gap and has become a staple in collections in school, public and academic libraries. The encyclopedia is anchored by alphabetically arranged essays on such topics as abolitionism, affirmative action, and the civil rights movement, and contains hundreds of shorter articles on notable African Americans, groundbreaking events, sports and culture, labor and significant heritage sites.Key features include: over 700 signed articles, organized A-Z; more than 50 photographs; reader's guide facilitates easy browsing for relevant articles; and, a comprehensive index and bibliography. Topics covered include: concepts and theories; fine arts, theater, and entertainment; health and education; history and heritage; literature; media movements and events; music and dance; organizations and institutions; places; politics and policy; popular culture; religion and beliefs; the road to freedom; science, technology, and business; social issues; special populations; and, sports advisory board.
