Reviews

"Black Lives in Alaska provides a corrective to [the] flimsy narrative of the state's race relations."

-- "Anchorage Daily News"

"The book's scope, spanning from the mid-nineteenth to the twenty-first century, is as ambitious as it is comprehensive. Such preference for width over depth ends there, however, as the authors seek to leave no relevant stone unturned in their diligent presentation of Alaska's Black histories."

-- "H-Net Reviews"

"Hartman and Reamer brilliantly play off one another's strengths in history and journalism to craft a critical examination of a population that grew between the 1880s and early 1960s due to military service relocation and opportunities connected to oil production and defense-industry buildup during the Cold War."

-- "Pacific Northwest Quarterly (PNQ)"
