  • Aimed at high school and college students, this six-volume encyclopedia is a comprehensive survey of knowledge on the African American experience. Whereas the first edition focused almost exclusively on the United States, the second edition includes a broad array of subjects on the black experience in Latin America and the Caribbean as well as the United States and Canada. Nearly 1300 articles, signed by experts in the field, provide extensive coverage of topics such as art, education, literature, music, politics, and religion. Cross-references are provided at the end of articles to inform readers of related topics, while nearly 450 photographs and illustrations highlight the text.
