"I knew that any meaningful explanation of what Africa was to me would depend on discovering what Africa was, and is, both to Africans and to all of us." That imperative led Harvard professor Gates (Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Black Man) on a journey through a dozen countries in an attempt to learn "who 'the African people' were and what, in fact, they had contributed to civilization." Its fruit--a thoughtful, copiously illustrated survey of 22 outstanding sites that is the companion book to an upcoming PBS series--will open a new world to readers of all stripes. Profusely illustrated in color and b/w. Gates is also known as Barack Obama's buddy "Skip." Notes, Index. Photo Pictorial Hard Cover. Dust Jacket in protective mylar sleeve shows mild shelf wear.
