Summary

For courses in African-American History.

Incorporating the basic features and narrative from The African-American Odyssey, this concise history presents its major episodes, issues and people. Ideally suited for one-semester courses or for instructors who want a brief core text, it tells a compelling story of survival, struggle, and triumph over adversity-leaving students with an appreciation of the central place of black people and culture in this country, and a better understanding of both African-American and American history. The 2nd edition presents a broadened international perspective, offers expanded coverage of interaction among African-Americans and other ethnic groups, and includes additional material on African-Americans in the western portion of the United States.
