  AMERICA'S LOST TREASURE was a scheduling challenge. Roundtable was approached by the publisher of the best-selling title Ship of Gold to create an illustrated tie-in in a hurry. Starting with only a rough manuscript, Roundtable brought the text and accompanying original photography to bound books in just six months.

  When Roundtable decided there was a need for a book on spiritual music, we approached Richard Newman at the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard to write it. GO DOWN, MOSES pairs his commentary on the lyrics to 200 spirituals with Terrance Cummings's powerful illustrations. The final touch: a foreword from Cornel West.
