Description: From Booklist
Ferebee, a former book reviewer, occasional contributor to National Public Radio, and creator of a black book Web site, brings a fervent love of books and reading to this informative resource on collecting and caring for books on African American heritage. Ferebee begins with general information on books, including how to care for them properly. Her recommendations, preceded by information on the genre and the cultural or historic context for the particular works, are divided into fiction and nonfiction with subcategories that include slave narratives, autobiographies and biographies, colonial literature to contemporary fiction, and arts and entertainment. She offers separate chapters on special collections and children's literature. Ferebee concludes with resources for securing the recommended books. A valuable resource for readers interested in creating a "legacy" collection of books on African Americans from classics to contemporary fiction and nonfiction. Vanessa Bush
