African American Readings in History and Identity

African American Readings in History and Identity Overview

This narrative historical anthology encapsulates the Afrocentric American experience from the beginning of human history until the beginning of the 21st century. Starting with the current situation for Black Americans and asking the question; "How did we all get to this?", this community college text investigates the conscious and unconscious strategies that led African Americans to emerge from slavery to become the most successful ethnic group in United States history. The aim is to focus on both triumph and tragedy to encourage collective social activism and encourage a strong personal identity rooted in both the African and American experiences.
