Summary

This historical journey through United States history chronicles the African American experience from its origin to the present, with a sophisticated yet clearly written style. The book also follows what is happening in the larger American society from the individual and group outlooks of African Americans. It focuses on African Americans at the center of such pivotal events as military conflicts, eras of settlement and expansion, slavery and abolition, emancipation and reconstruction, industrialization and urbanization, social change, racial turbulence and political upheaval, cultural and intellectual transformation, the African American journey towards freedom, and full participation in American democracy. For Historians, Librarians, Educators, Filmmakers, and anyone looking for perspective on the role of African Americans in American history.
