FINALLY, A BLACK CANON IN LITERATURE!!!
Similar to Bennett's BEFORE THE MAYFLOWER, Clifford Mason's work dives into the rich history of African-Americans in such an intelligent, engaging way, that you almost forget that each and every chapter really happened to black people. It's perfect for those who are interested in learning about both the well-known and the not-so-famous champions of black civil rights. I personally loved reading so much about Ida B. Wells, one of the earliest known champions of black civil rights. With Mason's in-depth coverage of black history and his mastery of prose, this book will definitely become a great work in its own right. THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN BOOKSHELF is an important step towards creating a true BLACK CANON IN LITERATURE!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
