DAVIES, CAROL BOYCE, ed.
Encyclopedia of the African Diaspora: Origins, Experiences and Culture.
3 vols. 1110 pp. Marked by a more than usual editorail indifference to the visual arts, entries of erratic quality and less than desirable levels of research or scholarship. Deborah Willis is alotted a bare handful of pages to cover the entirety of African American photography. The essay on African Diaspora Art was allotted 17 pages to cover a period of 35,000 years and makes a courageous attempt to do so. It is not supported by any entries on individual artists, and many of the artists mentioned are not in the index. The entry is also plagued with inexcusable misspellings of numerous artists' names. The essay on Diaspora photography is also beset by the requirement of inappropriate brevity; the author desperately spends most of the allotted space listing the names of a fairly subjective selection of photographers, some with birth dates, others not. Clyde Taylor packs his 2 1/2 page space allotment to cover Diaspora Film with as many names as possible and, understandably, still can find no room for the Black Audio Film Collective or other such experimental filmmakers, Other essays are depressingly vacuous - the essay on the Black Arts Movement, allotted 2 pages, spends only 31 lines on vague remarks about the movement which the reader is led to think is attributable to events that took place in the Nile Valley thousands of years before. What can you say about a book that devotes more space to rap and hip-hop than to Barbados. Not a book worth consulting? 4to (10.3 x 7.3 in.), cloth.

GATES, HENRY LOUIS, JR. and EVELYN BROOKS HIGGINBOTHAM, ed.
African American Lives.
Oxford University Press, 2004.
1080 pp. biographies of 611 African-Americans over more than four centuries, of which some 257 of the entries have been reprinted from American National Biography (Oxford, 1999). For far more entries on women than are found here, the reader should consult Darlene Clark Hine's Black Women in America: An Historical Encyclopedia (Carlson, 1993). The visual artists include a heavily skewed emphasis on photographers which seems to have come from copying the entries in Deborah Willis's Black Photographers: 1940-1988, without doing the same for any of the equivalent research on African American painters, sculptors, printmakers, etc. Hopefully this will be remedied in some future edition. Includes: Jesse James Aaron, Randy Abbott, Lancy O'Neal Abel, Julian Francis Abele, Billy (Fundi) Abernathy, Alonzo J. Aden, Terry Adkins, Jim Alexander, Salimah Ali, James Lattimer Allen, Jules Allen, Vance Allen, Winifred Hall Allen, Charles H. Alston, Frederick C.
