A note from the faculty in the Department of History at Cal State East Bay: These selections are not intended to be comprehensive; they rather suggest sources and resources that are accessible and have resonated among Cal State East Bay students investigating the historical context for Dominique Morrisseau's play, Blood at the Root. We have made an effort to include Bay Area or California connections and authors. Some of these sources are perhaps less widely known, and can be considered in addition to other key works identified by departments and offices at Cal State East Bay.
