From Timbuktu to Katrina: Sources in African-American History, Volume 2
Taylor's two-volume SOURCES IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY, a compilation of primary and secondary source readings, uses historical documents to peer into the African-American community. The two volumes cover five centuries, beginning with the medieval West African city of Timbuktu in Volume I, and addressing such current events as Hurricane Katrina in Volume II. The selections chosen cover the history of politics, culture, gender, social life, religion, racial identity, education, social class, sports, music, the environment, medicine, immigration and even crime representing an unprecedented attempt to span what historians now recognize as the enormous breadth and range of documents that reflect on African American life in the United States.
