Introduction by Howard Dodson, Director, Schomburg Center for Research in 
Black Culture: "In an era when the advances of the Internet and web 
technologies have threatened the very existence and relevance of books, 
Alkalimat, a cyberspace maven if there ever was one, has written an 
indispensable book for students, teachers, and scholars of the Africana 
experience who want to know what the Internet can do for them."

Mark Kornbluh, Executive Director, H-NET, Michigan State University: 
"[Alkalimat's book] is not only an invaluable resource for all interested 
in the Black experience, but it is also testimony to the proliferation of 
African American voices on the Internet."

Dorothy Washington, Librarian of the Black Cultural Center at Purdue 
University: "This stellar array of Africana digital archives, primary 
source material, streaming audio and video, syllabi, e-texts, music, 
photos, art, literature, bibliographies and webliographies should be in 
every personal and institutional library where users want to use 
cyber-sources to better understand African and the Diaspora."

Gloria H. Dickinson, President of ASALH: "Read this book and keep it close 
by your computer.  This book begins a new era of research and teaching."
