This powerful, provocative survey is organized around the key issues of Afro-American history: Africa and slavery, family, religion, sex and racism, politics, economics, education, criminal justice, discrimination and protest movements, and black nationalism.

"Concise enough to be grasped by students on all levels of academia....Shows profound scholarship and its facility of style renders it a tour de force."--Ralph J. Lowry, Lincoln University "An excellent book. A modern classic. It is both comprehensive and concise; and therefore very good for undergraduate students with little historical background in African-American studies. The best thing is the approach, which utilizes non-traditional materials to bring a necessary corrective to the distortions and limitations of most texts."--E. Yvonne Moss, University of San Francisco "Excellent text. Particularly useful for classes in African American culture which may attract a wide range of students."--Willi Coleman, Cal Poly State Uni San Luis? "The quality of the writing and the concepts is exceptional."--John R. M. Wilson, Southern California College "An invaluable resource for students of the Afro-American past."--The New Republic "Excellent interpretative history, ideal for Honors courses and senior classes. Should be in every black scholar's library."--Arthur A. Drayton, University of Kansas "Few have written more creative history. A brilliantly written and illustrated work."--Leroy T. Williams, University of Arkansas "Concise enough to be grasped by students on all levels of academia....Shows profound scholarship and its facility of style renders it a tour de force."--Ralph J.
