About

Overview

Revised Edition summarizes the lives and political careers of more than 180 important African Americans who have been elected to federal, state, or local office; who have served as cabinet secretaries or in other cabinet-level posts; and who have run for president of the United States. An introduction provides an overview of the history of African-American political involvement from 1855, when the first black person was elected to office, to the present. This revised book situates the individuals covered in the work in a wider perspective, so that each individual’s importance can be clearly gauged. Organized alphabetically, entries present basic biographical data and focus on what the person did that was important while he or she held or ran for office. A general bibliography, two subject indexes (one by office held, one by year of birth), a general index, further reading lists, and approximately 50 black-and-white photographs complement the text. New entries include: Cory Booker, Sheila Dixon, Adrian M. Fenty, Barack Obama, Deval Patrick.
