ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
      This pathbreaking collection
        of intellectual biographies is the first to probe the careers of thirteen
        early African-American anthropologists, detailing both their achievements
        and their struggle with the latent and sometimes blatant racism of the
        times. Invaluable to historians of anthropology, this collection will
        also be useful to readers interested in African-American studies and biography.
