SOURCES IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY, a new primary and secondary source reader, includes many selections that will be familiar to you, such as THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION or DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING'S LETTER FROM A BIRMINGHAM JAIL. However other documents such as Lucy Parson's 1886 speech, "I AM AN ANARCHIST" or AFRICAN AMERICANS AND ENVIRONMENTAL HISTORY: A MANIFESTO are included precisely because the rarely gain exposure beyond the gaze of a handful of experts in a particular subfield of African American history. This two-volume reader begins with medieval readings from the continent of Africa up to readings related to the events of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to encompass the enormous breadth and range of documents that reflect on African American life in the United States.
