F/F. Fine in Fine dustjacket.; First Printing of the Reprint Edition. FOREWORD BY DOROTHY I. HEIGHT-INTRODUCTION BY ANNE L. BOWER.; B&W Illustrations; 8vo; 166 pages; Summary: In 1958, the National Council of Negro Women published a cookbook documenting their food heritage. Organized to serve as a means of observing annual holidays, it presented recipes from the earliest days of the nation, with contextual commentary. The cookbook marched boldly into territory beyond plantation life with exotica such as sukiyaki and Ceylon curry. A new reprint of The Historical Cookbook of the American Negro offers insight into both the cooking of the first generations of African Americans and the self-perception of their female descendants at the outset of the sixties' civil rights movement.
