Great black historians
Posted by Christopher Moore
The Root, Henry Louis Gates ponders who are the great black historians. He means American, natch, and he means professors. But his candidates make a pretty interesting set of biographies.
I wonder who could make a list of the great minority historians in Canada. (Is this one of those "shortest book in the world" things?) Afua Cooper? Georges Sioui? Blair Stonechild? To get a long list or to go back very far, you would probably need to expand beyond Ph.D, tenured types.
