KIRKUS REVIEW

paper 0-8160-3904-6 About 50 new entries, plus occupational and chronological indexes, enhance this new edition of The Biographical Dictionary of Black Americans (1992, not reviewed). The 230 profiles comprise a representative sample of prominent African-Americans born after 1700, and are detailed enough for brief middle-grade reports. Libraries might consider this compact, utilitarian volume as a replacement for the original, or as an alternative to the four-volume African-American Biography (1994). (bibliography) (Nonfiction. 11-13)
