From the back cover:
"Never before has such an impressive and far-reaching mix of writings by African-Americans been gathered into a single anthology. Combining an extensive selection of poetry, prose, speeches, songs, documents, and letters dating from the pre-colonial era through today's best and most well-known authors, [it] offers a testament ot the pervasive influence of African-Americans on the political, creative, and cultural development of this nation, even well before its inception.
This important collection intorduces readers to long-neglected and relatively unknown items, such as the rousing letters of anonymous slave rebels...All of the most famous names are included, too...This collection covers every major figure, every era, every aspect of the Black written and oral tradition...all in one volume."
