Book Description

Published by EPM in Japan and distributed outside of Japan by Routledge

- The first major reprint collection of African-American music, including negro spirituals, slave songs, and African-American folk songs: crucial cultural artefacts for those seeking to understand the development of African-American culture and its acceptance by mainstream American society.

- The collection brings together nine publications published from the Civil War to the early twentieth century when interest in African-American music started rapidly to develop outside its own milieu.

- Indispensable source of information to research the development of African-American culture, music, religion, and social movement.
