Notes "A universal reference book" -- title page
"This first edition of Working Americans: African Americans 1898-2016 is the 14th volume in the Working Americans series. Its 30 profiles of African Americans span 118 years. Like the other volumes in this series, this work observes the lives of working Americans--African Americans in this case--decade by decade. It covers all ages, a wide range of geographical and social backgrounds, and a vast variety of professions, some of which focus on fortune, some on fame, some on a regular paycheck, and some on no paycheck at all. But all profiles, each supported by dozens of images, demonstrate the challenges faced by African Americans, from musicians to athletes to civil rights advocates to members of the military" -- ix
