Overview

Where were the first African American churches founded? When did Frederick Douglass deliver his first anti-slavery speech? Who de-segregated Major League Baseball? The turbulent history of African Americans unfolds in historical waves, through rights and injustices, migration, inventions and art, protests, legislation, and accomplishments. From the first recorded arrival of Africans in the New World to the death of Rosa Parks, a chronology of events ties history together for the reader, giving a greater sense of the struggle, alienation, and triumph of blacks in America.

The African American Chronology introduces the student researcher to the most impactful events in African American history, drawing from such categories as: Abolitionism, civil rights, economics, marriage, religion, media, literature, science, crime and war.

Organized by date and including entries through 2005, the Chronology is one of the most accessible and current of its kind. The fascinating historical record is illuminated through primary source sidebars, illustrations, a glossary, print and online bibliography, and index.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Kinshasa presents a compilation of events and circumstances experienced by people of African ancestry within the American social and political construct, from the 15th century to the early years of the 21st century. The material is organized into chapters by century, with each chapter subdivided into years, subject areas, and dates. An array of experiences is inserted into 49 subject areas, including religion, migration, slavery, war, business, media, and education. Academic but accessible to the general reader."
