The African Heritage of American English provides a detailed compilation of Africanisms, identified linguistically, from a range of sources: folklore, place names, food culture, aesthetics, religion, loan words. Presenting a comprehensive accounting of African words retained from Bantu, Joseph Holloway and Winifred Vass examine the Bantu vocabulary content of the Gullah dialect of the Sea Islands; Black names in the United States; Africanisms of Bantu origin in Black English; Bantu place names in nine southern states; and Africanisms in contemporary American English. These linguistic retentions reflect the cultural patterns of groups imported to the United States, the subsequent dispersion of these groups, and their continuing influence on the shaping of American culture.

Joseph E. Holloway, Professor of Pan African Studies at California State University, Northridge, is a specialist in cross-cultural studies relating to Africa and Afro-Americana. He is a former Ford and Fulbright Scholar, and author of Liberian Diplomacy in Africa, Neither Black Nor White: The Saga of An American Family, and An Introduction to Classical African Civilizations. He is co-author (with Winifred K. Vass) of The African Heritage of American English and editor of The Noble Drew Ali and the Moorish Science Temple Movement and has published widely on New World Africanisms.
