Black History Preview: 2007

From Booklist:

Black For those readers anxious to get a head start planning Black History Month activities or ordering relevant titles, we are offering our ninth annual Black History preview. It is intended to provide an overview of some of the books by and about African Americans to be published in 2008. The titles are based on lists submitted to us by both adult and youth publishers. Because we have not seen many of these titles yet, we can’t offer recommendations at this point, but we will be considering them for review as galleys arrive in the office in the coming weeks. Think of this Preview as part 1 of our Black History Month coverage. Part 2, of course, will be our annual Black History issue in February, which will include both reviews and numerous feature articles.

Abolitionist Politics and the Coming of the Civil War. By James Brewer Stewart.
