The Oxford University Press describes the six-volume DCALAB as "a major biographical reference work covering the lives and legacies of notable Afro-descendants from the Caribbean and Latin America, men and women from all eras and walks of life. This groundbreaking resource provides unprecedented coverage of the region through the lives of its people."
