Overview

From the bonds of slavery to the Civil Rights Movement, from the Deep South to the northern metropolises, from the Harlem Renaissance to the riots of South Central Los Angeles, Freedom tells of the African American struggle for equality from the first photographic records in nineteenth century all the way to the present. It is organized chronologically in five sections with introductory essays and narrative captions by noted scholars Manning Marable and Leith Mullings. The array and selection of photographs, many never seen before, reveal the journey in all its complexity and nuance, covering the struggle in its many different aspects - political, social, economic, and cultural. Highly relevant today, the photographs tell of the tremendous courage, determination, and power of a people fighting for a common goal.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Slave resistance and rebellion is as old as slavery itself. As early as the 17th century, captured Africans sought to free themselves from their mercantile captors. This mammoth, sumptuously illustrated volume chronicles and celebrates the heroic acts of these involuntary immigrants.
Library Journal
Freedom breaks new ground as a complete and current photo-history of the African American struggle. It derives much of its success from the effective selection and visual placement of historical photographs, which are taken from numerous archives around the country and beyond. The full- and half-page images (both color and black-and-white) portray noted events, such as the sit-in demonstrations and Civil Rights marches, as well as important African Americans and relevant everyday scenes. Marable (director, Inst. for Research in African-American Studies, Columbia Univ.) and Mullings (anthropology, CUNY), who have written numerous texts on African American studies, here provide essays and expository captions that support each of the 546 images. The content of the book is arranged chronologically and grouped into five major periods: slavery and reconstruction, the formation of Jim Crow racism, the movement of blacks into the northern cities and labor markets, the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, and recent developments. A chronological summary makes it useful as a reference. This large volume, the most comprehensive of its kind, will provide a moving experience for any reader. Strongly recommended for every public and academic library.-Eric Linderman, East Cleveland P.L. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Falling in Love

    I am falling in LOVE with this book....It is a must have for anyone that interested in the African-American experience, which is in essense the American experience. Excellent photography. This book rivals Deborah Willis' Reflections in Black.
