* Reviews *Collection Review: The Heritage Library of African Peoples
"Each book methodically records contemporary culture, sociopolitical dynamics, and lifeways as well as historically significant events and rituals--all the while maintaining an unwavering focus on a complete and accurate delineation of the continent's indigenous Black peoples. Color maps of the continent and the subject regions enable students to familiarize themselves with the geographic areas. The texts are consistently well-written and engaging. Vivid, well-known photographs particularize and amplify the prose. Miniessays provide complementary cultural details."
