Gale Research, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 1365 pages
After publishing the award-winning Notable Black American Women, Gale created an equally comprehensive and relevant source of hard-to-find information on African American men of achievement. Notable Black American Men profiles 500 contemporary and historic figures whose accomplishments will inspire students of every heritage. Covering the most prominent newsmakers to lesser-known names, this single volume features full biographical entries, 400 photographs, addresses for living listees and recommended sources for further study. Thorough subject and geographical indexes plus two tables of contents - arranged alphabetically and by field of endeavor - will guide students to reliable information quickly and easily. Its broad scope distinguishes this resource from any other. It represents virtually every field of endeavor, including government, politics, education, sports, law and the arts.
