An exciting new document-rich introduction to African American history

Award-winning scholars and veteran teachers Deborah Gray White, Mia Bay, and Waldo E. Martin Jr. have collaborated to create a fresh, innovative new African American history textbook that weaves together narrative and a wealth of carefully selected primary sources. The narrative focuses on the diversity of black experience, on culture, and on the impact of African Americans on the nation as a whole. Every chapter contains two themed sets of written documents and a visual source essay, guiding students through the process of analyzing sources and offering the convenience and value of a "two-in-one" textbook and reader.
"This textbook really makes the subject matter come alive through narrative, primary source readings, and images. Excellent! I would enthusiastically recommend it as heads and shoulders above any other text available for this subject."

— Alyce Miller, John Tyler Community College
