Overview

Through the use of two interrelated themes - the idea of universal freedom and the concept of minority-majority coalitions - the text demonstrates the profound influence African Americans have had on American government and politics. The authors show how the presence of Africans in the United States affected the founding of the Republic and its political institutions and processes, and how in the quest for their own freedom in the United States, African Americans have expanded the freedoms of all Americans.
