Black in America: Additional Notes
This companion website provides a set of explanatory notes that go beyond the footnotes in the bound book. These notes are designed to be of particular help to students who have limited familiarity with American culture, and/or students who have learned English as an additional language—though the extra notes may offer support to any student. Words and phrases for which additional notes are provided here are marked with a small asterisk in the bound book. The notes themselves may either be consulted online or be printed out and kept handy as you read.
These notes can be downloaded in either Word or PDF format by selecting from the links below.
