Alphabet of Black Cultures by Jeffrey S Daniels lists several items and practices that have deep-seated roots in black culture in alphabetical order. On every page, there is a description to give the reader insight into the common use or function of the item or concept being presented. The traditions, games, and items in this book are from locations all over the world. From Zimbabwe, Puerto Rico, Togo, and Madagascar to Kenya, South Africa, America, and Nigeria, there is a wide world of amazing information to learn. The pages following the alphabetized listings give more in-depth explanations about how some of them are used or shared in different places.

I absolutely love Alphabet Of Black Cultures by Jeffrey S Daniels! There is so much to learn about so many different places with so many different cultures that are important to modern society packed into this volume. From A to Z this book delivers a widely diverse display of black culture from around the globe! A game called Awale played in different locations including Ghana, Togo’s traditional wrestling sport called Evala, an Ethiopian teapot called Jebena that is handcrafted, and many more culturally unique items. The pictures in this book display each listing in a beautiful image unique to each location, item, or trait. I recommend Alphabet Of Black Cultures to anyone of any age and would highly encourage teachers to add this book to their curriculum. People of all ages and from any walk of life could highly benefit from getting to know more about cultures from all over the world. I truly hope that Daniels will continue writing books like this!
