Overview

Since their first arrival in the New World, the experiences of individual ethnic groups have often been lost in the larger story of American history. Using a wide arrangement of visual tools, this atlas offers a detailed overview of the experiences and important events surrounding Americans of African descent. The atlas provides a comprehensive historical overview of what is known as the African diaspora-the spread of African people and culture throughout the Americas. It is the perfect addition to any African-American studies collection. Photographs, line graphs, charts, chronologies, box features, and maps help explore the cultural, historical, political, and social history of African Americans. Coverage also profiles key events and issues in their homeland, especially those factors that influenced their movement to the United States.
