Summary

Summary

From slavery to freedom to the arduous battle for civil rights, the ten-volume Drama of African-American History series traces the black American experience from its roots to the present day. Five titles are available now. These take readers back to life in Africa before and during the slave trade, describe the horrors of that trade and the sea passage to America, and move along through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Five additional titles will carry the history up to the present day. Drama is perhaps an understatement when it comes to African-American history. the word is certainly appropriate to the subject matter, and each of the authors, while scrupulously accurate and even-handed, manages to bring a passion to their work worthy of their theme.
