Autobiographies By Americans Of Color 1980-1994: An Annotated Bibliography, Rebecca Stuhr
Rebecca A Stuhr
This book compiles and provides a brief summary of autobiographies published or reissued during the last decades of the 20th century. This is an excellent source for finding personal accounts of growing up just after the end of slavery through the civil rights movement, experiences for Japanese Americans during World War II, the American Indian Movement, and the growing movement for rights for immigrant labor in the United States. Many of these autobiographies were written to provide an account of family history, hardship endured, and accomplishments achieved for the next generation.
