Jubilee: The Emergence of African-American Culture
Howard Dodson (au); Wynton Marsalis (fr). A Jubilee is a celebration -- but for African Americans (AA) the word has a special meaning: the day of freedom. But long before the Emancipation Proclamation, Africans in the Americas had fashioned a culture uniquely their own. This magnificent book explores every aspect of the legacy of AA. This book is filled with evocative illustrations, photos, & documents, as well as dozens of informative sidebars. Includes essays by such distinguished contributors as Amiri Baraka, Gail Buckley, John Hope Franklin, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Annette Gordon-Reed, & Gayraud S. Wilmore. The text chronicles the impact of 300 years of slavery on America & the emergence of a unique AA culture that was nourished by strength, courage, & determination.
