Encyclopedia of Black Studies

Encyclopedia of Black Studies (SAGE Reference Online)
Sage e-Reference , e Reference
Sage eReference
Description

The Encyclopedia of Black Studies has brought together the work of nearly 200 scholars with the objective of securing a baseline for the establishment of a canon of the field. Our intention has been to convey a sense of the research activity, conceptualization, and pedagogy of Black Studies scholars. Thus, we have created an encyclopedia that is conceptually driven rather than personality driven; that is, the ideas and concepts of the field are thrust into the forefront and create the context within which individuals' contributions are acknowledged. Ed. by Molefi Kete Asante and Ama Mazama.
