Originally published in 1978, Black Genesis was perhaps the first book to provide researchers with access to family history information and materials for African Americans. The continued interest in the now out-of-date first edition of the book persuaded the authors that there was a need for an updated and expanded version of their original work.
Although there are now a number of book on African-American research available on the market, Black Genesis remains the standard bearer. Its new format — organized by state and, within each state, by category — makes locating resources pertaining to slaves and free Black in the United States easier than ever.
Thanks to the editors — James M. Rose and Alice Eichholz — for presenting more assistance to researchers to uncover African-American contributions to the cultural and historical formation of the United States.
