Book Description

Nov. 1 2007 Facts on File Library of American History
Building on the authoritative text of the first edition, "Atlas of African-American History, Revised Edition" chronicles the important cultural, historical, political, and social experiences of African Americans through the years. Completely updated and revised, this fascinating book features numerous full-color maps - 18 of which are new - that engage readers with easy-to-grasp facts, figures, and images of everyday life. Ten new black-and-white photographs, eight new full-color photographs, and four line illustrations enliven the text.Coverage includes: the dramatic 1839 journey of the Amistad, including its successful slave rebellion; the labor activism of Albert and Lucy Parsons, an interracial couple who led the eight-hour-day movement and the national railroad strike; the accomplishments of Matthew Henson, who, with Robert Peary, discovered the North Pole in 1909; the post - World War II influences that drove the economic rise of a new black middle class; analysis of how the cultural contributions of writers, actors, athletes, musicians, and other artists helped define American culture during the 1960s and 1970s; and the rise of hip-hop and rap from a local South Bronx phenomenon into a powerful industry capable of launching other businesses. The coverage also includes: demographic profiles of the health, education, employment, income, spending habits, homeownership, and other benchmarks of African Americans, as well as how these compare with those of other Americans; the powerful role of theater, comedy, TV, and film in presenting and shaping the image of African Americans from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s; and the persistent social, racial, and economic issues that still confront America, as highlighted by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Excellent source for middle school and adults for learning key points about the African-American experience. Love use of graphs, charts, pictographs, and tables. Their use helps young students become comfortable with using these tools for understanding and interpreting data.

Great Book, Thanks. I suggest that every African in North America should read this book and pass it on to their children to read. Also, other nationalities and cultures should read this book to give them so knowledge and information on Africans in North America as well. Also, their are other books like this for other nationalities as well.
