Review:

Filling a void in the literature, this book will be an excellent primary text with its emphasis on social activism, international perspectives, the humanities and gender. I would highly recommend it as an introduction to the field.

(Terry Kershaw, University of Cincinnati & Editor, International Journal of Africana Studies)

African American Studies is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on the discipline of Black/Africana Studies.

(Sundiata Keita Cha-Jua, University of Illinois Urbana & President of the National Council for Black Studies)

This book will be of greatest interest to undergraduate and graduate students and scholars of African American Studies... Recommended.
