Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is a massive compilation of over 1200 newspaper articles and 470 illustrations related to African Americans, culled from a group of 13 newspapers gathered by collector Richard C. Schneider. Organized chronologically, the items are supplemented by some articles from other papers. A scholar in the field provides a brief historical introduction for each year, and an appendix provides a brief history of most of the papers excerpted. This study provides an interesting resource for teachers because it illustrates changes in white attitudes toward blacks during the period. Unfortunately, no African American papers are included, and Harpers Weekly is vastly overrepresented. Recommended only for large university libraries.-Anthony O. Edmonds, Ball State Univ., Muncie, Ind.
