The Family of Black America

Text by Michael H. Cottman, Edited by Deborah Willis

Published 1996 by Crown Trade Paperbacks

 Excerpts from the Book: The Family of Black America. Like the Family of Man, the appeal of this book is its depiction of the many faces of African American families from the 1920s to today as photographed by master black photographers and promising contemporary ones. A collection of beautiful and expressive images, these photos show the spirit of the subject, while the text captures it in words.
