"History of the American Negro: West Virginia Edition is a collection of biographies of African American men and women at the beginning of the twentieth century. Edited and published by A.B. Caldwell, the History of the American Negro collection includes seven volumes that richly describe the lives of citizens in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, DC, and West Virginia. In a statement printed in the first volume of this series, Caldwell wrote that his intent in publishing this collection was neither "comprehensive nor exhaustive," yet he was determined to shed light on the "successful element unrecorded" of black Americans in the United States. As the 7th volume in Caldwell's collection, History of the American Negro: West Virginia Edition chronicles the struggles and triumphs of everyday African Americans in West Virginia during the post-World War I era. A resource for genealogists, historians, and citizens alike, this history provides a detailed account of the often overlooked lives of ordinary men and women."--Project Muse.
