From Library Journal
As with her Black Photographers 1840-1940 ( LJ 6/1/85), Willis-Thomas here makes an important contribution to the history of black photographers and their work. More than 400 photographers are listed, with 177 entries offering biographical, chronological, and bibliographic information. These entries are generally short, serving as openings to research on most of these photographers who, for many reasons, are not widely known. The photographs that make up the largest part of this book are a powerful, collective image of people and struggle. They also represent a little-known treasure of finely honed, lovingly composed photographs that expand our expectations of recent photography. Highly recommended to libraries that are expanding collections on African-American art and history.
