This book offers the first extensive look at black-owned publishing companies from 1817 to 1990, and reveals previously unknown facts about the contributions of blacks to Western civilization. By studying bibliographic works, book advertisements, periodical literature, and business directories, Joyce has collected a wealth of information on 46 firms. Included are publishing histories, bibliographic data, information sources, libraries holding specific titles, and officers and addresses where appropriate. The entries are arranged alphabetically by firm, and a geographical listing and author/title/subject index are also provided.
