Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A comprehensive, in-depth presentation of African-Americana, also known as black memorabilia or collectibles, generously illustrated with over 500 color photos. This gorgeous photo essay and extensively researched historical perspective includes a broad sampling of black memorabilia, encompassing everything from "Little Black Sambo" and "Aunt Jemima" to photography, figurines, and dolls. Social, economic, and historical influences are examined while supplying the identification and value information that collectors of African-Americana seek. It also explores the roots and consequences of Anglo-America's attitudes toward African-Americans.The eighteenth book written by Barbara E. Mauzy, African-Americana is among her most important works to date. It will satisfy collectors with good information and a price guide, and historians with a visual and verbal history of race perceptions and stereotypes in America.
