Now in paperback! A must for all libraries and women's studies, Black studies, and multicultural programs, this new edition brings together a huge body of materials by and about Black women, more than doubling the number of works listed in its two predecessors. Williams covers many more areas and disciplines to which African-American women have contributed. Two articles feature the recently deceased nonagenarian Dr. Eva Jessye (internationally known choral director) and the vitally active octogenarian Dr. Dorothy Porter Wesley (librarian and scholar). As before, pictures of artists, art works, and authors are included. The major purposes of this comprehensive reference are to call attention to the many contributions African-American women have made to American and world culture; to emphasize the continuity among their works; to highlight some of the scholarly areas needing attention; and to present as complete and as positive a portrait of these women as possible through these works and about them.
