Publisher Comments:

Almost fifty years ago Melville Herskovits set out to debunk the myth that black Americans have no cultural past. Originally published in 1941, his unprecedented study of black history and culture recovered a rich African heritage in religious and secular life, the language and arts of the Americas.

Book News Annotation:

A reprint of Herskovits' respected 1941 assertion that black Americans do retain a rich African heritage. Contains a new (12 p.) introduction by Sidney W. Mintz.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In his unprecedented study of black history and culture, Herskovits reveals a rich African heritage in religious and secular life, the language and the arts of the Americas.
