Summary
A landmark book tracing African American history from the arrival of the conquistadors and the sixteenth century, through the ordeal of slavery and the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the Jim Crow era and the Great Migration through the civil rights and black nationalist movements and the age of hip-hop to the Joshua generation and the election of Barack Obama. Informed by the latest scholarship, and including more than eight hundred images--ancient maps, art, documents, photographs, cartoons, posters--Gates focuses on defining events, debates, and controversies, as well as the achievements of people famous and obscure.
Summary
A director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard presents a sumptuously illustrated chronicle of more than 500 years of African-American history that focuses on defining events, debates and controversies as well as important achievements of famous and lesser-known figures, in a volume complemented by reproductions of ancient maps and historical paraphernalia
