New Releases in African American Intellectual History

Chris Cameron African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS)
New books and research in African American history and culture. Recent or soon-to-be published books, which the African American Intellectual History Society feels would be of interest to readers. Regrettably the cost for some puts these out of reach of many - but there is always your public or school library. Suggest that these be ordered.
