Bond, Mildred, Roy Wilkins, Paul Schwartz, Et Al

The response to them overwhelmingly justified this compilation of those biographies.

Huggins, Nathan Irvin
NY Pantheon Books 1977 0394416414 / 9780394416410 Stated 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
This classic work of scholarship and empathy tells the story of the self-creation of the African-American people. It assesses the full impact of the Middle Passage -- "the most traumatizing mass human migration in modern history" -- and of North American slavery both on the enslaved and on those who enslaved them. It explores the ways in which a nominally free society perverted its own freedoms and denied the fact that an inhuman institution lies at the heart of the American experience. The authority and eloquence of this work make it essential reading for all who want to understand the American past and present. Minor wear, soil. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 250 pages; 26553

Black Fiction, Rosenblatt, Roger

Rosenblatt, Roger
Harvard University Press 1974 0674076206 / 9780674076204 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
From DJ flap: In this illuminating book Mr. Rosenblatt offers both sensitive analyses of individual works and a provocative and compelling thesis. He argues that black fiction has a unity deriving not from any chronological sequence, or simply from its black authorship, but from a particular cyclical conception of history on which practically every significant black American novel and short story is based. Black DJ is edgeworn, rubbed and has one closed tear, about 1 inch, "repaired" with scotch tape. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 211 pages; 30657
