For Black History Month I am creating a directory of all of CWT's book reviews related to African Americans. Some of the books are entirely focused on African Americans and others give significant consideration of African Americans. If you want to help, please add links that I might have missed. I expect it will take me all of February 2019 to complete this directory.
