Editorial Reviews

Booknews
"A kiasili" (original in Kiswahili) is how Conyers (Black studies, U. of Nebraska-Omaha) characterizes the contributions of Woodson (1875-1950), often called the Father of Black History, whose work is under-studied. He introduces his selected writings on Africana historiography (sample title: Freedom and slavery in Appalachian America); economic historical studies (The independent church movement); Black education (Early Negro education in West Virginia); and Africana biography (The Negroes of Cincinnati prior to the Civil War). Includes photographs and a biographical sketch of Woodson, concluding with the posthumous extension in 1978 of Black History week to the entire month of February. Annotation c.
