Covering a broader range of African American lives than ever before, the African American National Biography presents history through a mosaic of the lives of [over] 4,100 individuals, some known throughout the world and others all but forgotten, illuminating the abiding influence of African Americans on the life of this nation through the immediacy of personal experience.

The African American National Biography includes not only great and famous African Americans, but a selection that will be representative of the scope of African American experience.
