Anthologies and Almanacs are nice to have.
African American Almanacs and Anthologies are priceless.
Kudos to sis. Lean'tin Bracks for providing this groundbreaking, detailed, masterpiece chronicling and capturing the centuries of accomplishments made by past and contemporary Black minds. She is a living testament to the true purpose and calling of a Griot. This compilation is worthy of the highest accolades and Ms. Bracks deserves to be noted as the watershed writer of our times.
It's that good.
