For one or two-semester undergraduate courses in African-American History and African-American Studies.This text illuminates the central place of African Americans in U.S. history not only telling the story of what it has meant to be black in America, but also how African-American history is inseparably weaved into the greater context of American history.Told through a clear, direct, and flowing narrative by leading scholars in the field, African-Americans: A Concise History draws on recent research to present black history within broad social, cultural, and political frameworks. From Africa to the twenty-first century, this book follows the long turbulent journey, the rich culture that African Americans have nurtured throughout their history, and the quest for freedom through which African Americans have sought to counter oppression and racism. This text also recognizes the diversity within the African-American sphere providing coverage of class and gender and balancing the lives of ordinary men and women with the accounts and actions of black leaders and individuals.
