Actually, www.eonline.net links to Reel.com, and while they listed three
titles on a "black history" search ("Black History: Lost, Stolen or
Strayed"; "Lessons From History - A Celebration in Blackness"; and "Pride
and Prejudice: A History of Black Culture in America"), zero of three are
actually available once you follow the link to Reel.com. This is,
unfortunately, one of the big problems with online retailers that list
everything, regardless of whether they really carry it or not.
