The African-American Odyssey is a compelling story of agency, survival, struggle and triumph over adversity. The authors highlight what it has meant to be black in America and how African-American history is inseparably woven into the greater context of American history. The text provides accounts of the lives of ordinary men and women alongside those of key African-Americans and the impact they have had on the struggle for equality to illuminate the central place of African-Americans in U.S. history more than any other text.
Superior in content, sources, and organization. The text does a phenomenal job of profiling various people and moments throughout history. An additional strength of the book is the extensive use of visual aids and recommended readings at the conclusion of every chapter.

The greatest challenge has been in finding a text that both on-campus and online students can utilize. The Hine text seems to have eliminated this challenge.
-Evyonne Hawkins, Richland Community College
I find it extremely well written, covering all of the bases. I wanted a text that does a good job with the basics of US history. Hine does that.
-Theodore Kallman, San JoaquinDelta College
What really makes this book standout is the coverage of women and the many significant contributions they have made. My female students often thank me for choosing a book which makes them an important part of the story.

I highly recommend this book as it gives a detailed history of african American trials, tribulations and accomplishment. It traces the odyssey (journey) from being held captive and put on slave ships going to America and other countries. Also African Americans life from colonial times to the present. Excellent book.
