Includes bibliographical references and indexes.
After publishing the award-winning Notable Black American Women, the Gale Group created an equally comprehensive and relevant source of hard-to-find information on African American men of achievement. Notable Black American Men profiles 500 contemporary and historic figures whose accomplishments will inspire students of every heritage.
Covering the most prominent newsmakers to lesser-known names, this single volume features full biographical entries, 400 photographs, addresses for living listees and recommended sources for further study. Thorough subject and geographical indexes plus two tables of contents -- arranged alphabetically and by field of endeavor -- will guide students to reliable information quickly and easily.
Its broad scope distinguishes this resource from any other. It represents virtually every field of endeavor, including government, politics, education, sports, law and the arts. Some of the remarkable African American men profiled are: -- Hank Aaron-- Alvin Alley-- Louis Armstrong-- Arthur Ashe-- Benjamin Banneker-- Romare Bearden-- Ron Brown-- Benjamin O. Davis, Jr.-- Dick Gregory-- Spike Lee-- Thurgood Marshall-- Elijah Muhammad-- Colin Powell-- Clarence Thomas-- Daniel Hale Williams
Notable Black American Men and its successful precursor were edited by author and black studies scholar Dr. Jessie Carney Smith. She is the William and Camille Cosby Professor at Fisk University Library and has received numerous awards for her books and her work as an educator.
