Library Journal Review

Editor Reich's excellent (history, James Madison Univ., Harrisonburg, VA; A Working People: A History of African American Workers Since Emancipation) work provides researchers with a broad overview of the two waves of migration by Southern blacks to the North and West regions of the United States. A guide to topics, grouped by subject, and a chronology are located at the beginning of the book. Subjects include social and political movements, business, people, religion, culture, sports, and geographic regions. Most important, the entries highlight the influence of black migration on each of the subject areas. Summaries also include a short list of books or articles for further reading as well as cross-references to other entries. Primary-source documents, such as letters and firsthand news articles, along with a selected bibliography arranged by subject are also provided. VERDICT The stated target audience for this encyclopedia is high school students, but the material will be useful to students in community colleges as well. Recommended for serving those populations.-Diane Fulkerson, Univ. of South Florida, Lakeland (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
