Collecting African American History, by esteemed dealer Elvin Montgomery, is the first comprehensive illustrated book to offer in-depth information about these artifacts and-more importantly-place them in their original cultural context. Through the study of hundreds of collectibles from every key period of U.S. history, the book reveals the story of African Americans as told through objects.
This book is not a price guide. Rather, it is a lavishly illustrated book that will assist readers interested in interpreting and accumulating items that reflect the realities, rather than the myths, of black history and culture.
Author Biography: Elvin Montgomery is a dealer and collector of African American history and culture, who also lectures and consults on the subject.
