"Documentary photographer Norman Mauskopf delves into African American life in the Mississippi Delta. The book is a revealing chronicle of the shared rural and agricultural community that gave birth to the blues. From the cotton fields to juke joints, revivals to front-porch get-togethers, Mauskopf’s exploration of this tradition-rich culture documents the many ways in which the African American community has drawn on the past, keeping intact its rituals and a way of life in the American South. Mauskopf is the author of Rodeo (1985) and Dark Horses (1988)"--Publisher's website

Walking on water : Black American lives at the turn of the twenty-first century by Randall Kenan( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Let the Dead Bury Their Dead comes a group portrait of African Americans at the turn of the twenty-first century. In a blend of oral history and travel writing, Randall Kenan sets out to answer a question that has long fascinated him: What does it mean to be black in America today? To find the answers, Kenan traveled America--from Alaska to Louisiana, from Maine to Las Vegas--over the course of six years, interviewing nearly two hundred African Americans from every conceivable walk of life. We meet a Republican congressman and an AIDS activist; a Baptist minister in Mormon Utah and an ambitious public-relations major in North Dakota; militant activists in Atlanta and movie folks in Los Angeles. The result is a sharp, full picture of contemporary African American lives and experiences
