The Black Box from Dr. Henry Louis Gates that recently brought us GOSPEL on PBS!!!

American Studies, THE BLACK BOX: Writing the Race, is the story of Black self-definition in America through the prism of the writers who have led the way. From Phillis Wheatley and Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington, to Zora Neale Hurston and Richard Wright, James Baldwin and Toni Morrison-these writers used words to create a livable world-a "home" -for Black people destined to live out their lives in a bitterly racist society.
