Crossing the Danger Water, by Deirdre Mullane
A chronological history of African-American life and thought represents a broad written and oral tradition and includes evidence of an African presence in America predating Columbus, brief historical introductions to each piece, and biographical notes. This is the most comprehensive collection of African-American writing to date and includes poetry, prose, speeches, songs, documents, and letters from the pre-Colonial era through today's best and most well-known writers. An anthology that anyone interested in the full scope of African-American history should not be without.
