Great Lives from History: African Americans features 800 essays covering people from the eighteenth century through the early twenty first century. The majority of the individuals included in this set have never been covered in this series before. Many individuals are household names, famous for their work in such fields as entertainment, sports, civil rights, politics, and literature. Others have received less attention but made important contributions in such fields as education, journalism, business, and science. An alphabetically complete list of contents can be found in the front matter of every volume, as well as a pronunciation key. A multitude of sidebars provide key information on notable achievements, career highlights, and important causes. Appendixes include a Chronological List of Entries, a comprehensive Bibliography, a list of Research Centers and Libraries, and a list of Literary Works that explore the African American experience. Geographical, Personage, and Subject Indexes round out this fascinating five volume set.
