Everybody Say Freedom: Everything You Need to Know About African-American History (Paperback)
Product Descriptionby Richard Newman and Marcia Sawyer, Ph.D., Foreword by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
African Americans have played a singularly important role in shaping the course of our history and culture since the first British settlement in Virginia more than 350 years ago. Yet until recently they have been largely absent from standard history books, aside from an occasional mention of slavery and Martin Luther King, Jr. Written in lively question-and-answer form, this book brings to light the full truth of how much African Americans have contributed to the fabric of American life, and enlarges our understanding of the extraordinary circumstances African Americans have had to meet and overcome.
