Encyclopedia Africana

Inspired by the dream of the late African American scholar W.E.B. Du Bois and assisted by an eminent advisory board led by Nigerian Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka, Harvard professors Kwame Anthony Appiah and Henry Louis Gates, Jr., have created the first scholarly encyclopedia that takes as its scope the entire history of Africa and the African Diaspora. A landmark in reference publishing, Africana is an incomparable one-volume encyclopedia of the black world-a vital resource for families, students, and educators everywhere. For more info click here

This is a much needed resource. I wrote several entries for the African American National Biogrpahy that Skip organized but it's not as exhaustive as this set. There needs to be a reference for the entire Diaspora and this looks like it fills the need.
