Penguin announces a prestigious new series under presiding editor Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. Many works of history deal with the journeys of blacks in bondage from Africa to the United States along the middle passage, but there is also a rich and little examined history of African Americans traveling in the opposite direction. In Middle Passages, award-winning historian James T. Campbell vividly recounts more than two centuries of African American journeys to Africa, including the experiences of such extraordinary figures as Langston Hughes, W.E.B. DuBois, Richard Wright, Malcolm X, and Maya Angelou. A truly groundbreaking work, Middle Passagesoffers a unique perspective on African Americans ever-evolving relationship with their ancestral homeland, as well as their complex, often painful relationship with the United States.

James T. Campbell is professor of American civilization, Africana studies, and history at Brown University. Robert G. Lee is associate professor of American civilization at Brown University.

James T. Campbell, award-winning author of Songs of Zion: The African Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States and South Africa, is an associate professor of American civilization, African studies, and history at Brown University.
