Product description

The Online Authority on the African American Experience.

Oxford University Press is proud to announce the creation of the first online resource center to fully document the field of African American Studies and Africana Studies. "The Oxford African American Studies Center, using the most sophisticated technology, will enable us to reassemble the lost and scattered fragments of the African American past.

This tool is absolutely indispensable to any student or scholar seeking to explore the contributions that persons of African descent have made, since their arrival on these shores in the seventeenth century, to the stirring saga that is American history. 

I only wish that this rich resource had been available to scholars like W. E. B. Du Bois, Anna Julia Cooper and Carter G. Woodson, on whose shoulders we stand." HENRY LOUIS GATES, Jr., Editor in Chief. Oxford African American Studies Center wins 'outstanding work of reference published in electronic format' at the ISG (CILIP) / BookData Reference Awards 2006. Judging criteria included: the authority and quality of the work; scope and coverage; arrangement, and currency of the information; quality of indexing; adequacy of references; physical presentation; originality; and value for money.
