Synopsis : No further information has been provided for this title.
From Booklist: Another title in the attractive Facts On File series A to Z of African Americans. Like other volumes in the series (e.g., African Americans in the Performing Arts [RBB Ag 03], African-American Religious Leaders [RBB F 15 04]), it is well written, well researched, and a useful (but not essential) purchases for school and public libraries.
Each alphabetically arranged entry provides a one- to two-page biography with cross-references, photo, and suggestions for further reading (many with Web sites). A bibliography and indexes by office, year of birth, and keyword follow the text. The entries profile 185 individuals from Ethel Allen (Pennsylvania secretary of state) to Coleman Young (mayor of Detroit) who have been elected to federal, state, or local office or have served in cabinet-level posts. Chronological coverage begins with John Langston (1829-97), the first African American elected to public office. However, Education Secretary Roderick Paige and the current Wilmington, Delaware, mayor--James Baker--are not included.
There is some overlap with other works, such as Distinguished African-American Political and Governmental Leaders (Oryx, 1999), and even with other volumes in the series. Buy where reports and interest make this title needed. RBB
