Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This two-volume encyclopedia contains more than 600 entries describing the lives of prominent African American women. Photos. (Sept).
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

This is an extremely useful guide to both the history and current status of African American women. The majority of the entries are biographical; organizations, movements, and the place of black women in the arts, literature, and various professions are also thoroughly discussed. In comparison with Notable Black American Women ( LJ 3/1/92), which contains only biographical articles, Black Women in America offers broader coverage (800 vs. 500 entries), although the articles are shorter and of varying quality. While most are very informative, some major figures and topics are shortchanged (e.g., the entry on Eleanor Holmes Norton is only a few short paragraphs, and some black universities have separate entries while others do not). Photographs and references accompany nearly each entry; appendixes include a chronology of African American women's achievements in the United States and a thorough subject index. The contributors are all highly qualified. Smaller libraries on limited budgets may be satisfied with Notable Black American Women, but larger collections and all black studies collections will need both. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
Black Women in America is the most authoritative resource for African-American Women's History on the market. Published by England's Oxford University Press, it explores the historical contributions of Black women to American life. The 3 volume set is enormous in scope, yet is presented in well illustrated compact volumes. Biographies and critical essays illuminate the past from America's Revolutionary War Era to the present. Black Women in America is an inspiring resource for libraries and living rooms. This well researched encyclopedia set reminds us of the noble ideals that make America great.

I a relative and descendent to Sarah Parker Remond am truly disappointed in the information listed. Still researching my family history cannot begin to tell you how I was utterly dumbfounded when I read she was primarily self-taught. Actually, she was educated formally, yet her family abolitionists and outspoken business owners in protest left their lucrative business and moved to RI where segregation was not the case and she was educated their until the laws where changed in Massachusetts, where she was born.
She later was educated in Italy and received a degree to become a medical doctor. Yes, you are correct she married and never returned.

A book that need to be taught in our middle school so that they can appreciate their heritage is more than the couple of individuals they focus on year after year

The encyclopedia is filled with information that some is valid, while some information is not valid. Upon further research I discovered discrepancies - irritating. I bought the encyclopedia for a condense version of information, but ended using to many other sources to validate the outcomes.
