Amazon.com description: Product Description: From Sidney Poitier and Billie Holiday to Halle Berry and Tupac Shakur, African Americans in the Performing Arts profiles African Americans, from the early years to the present day, who have built successful careers in the performing arts. With up-to-date information, including commentary on the history-making event at the 2002 Oscars when African American actors won both best lead actor awards, this volume in the new A to Z of African Americans series offers a wealth of useful information for students, general readers, and lovers of the performing arts. Beginning with a general introduction on African American performing artists, this book also includes a bibliography, subject indexes, and a general index. Each entry provides a biographical profile, concentrating on the events in that person's life related to his or her accomplishments in the performing arts, and a list of further reading related to the individual. This volume spotlights actors, dancers, singers, and musicians.
