Freedom's Odyssey: African American History Essays from Phylonby Alexa B. Henderson (Editor), Janice S. Edmond (Editor), Janice S. Edmond (Editor), Janice Sumler-Edmond (Editor)
This anthology brings together for the first time twenty-nine of the most significant essays on African American History from the rich legacy of scholarship published originally by Phylon: the Atlanta University Review of Race and Culture from 1940 through 1987. Arranged both by chronology and theme, collectively they provide a vivid, detailed mosaic of African American history and a structural frame for the study of the African American journey from the earliest days of slavery through the Civil Rights Era. A comprehensive editorial introduction as well as specific, contextual introductions position each essay in the study of history and in relation to contemporary scholarship. Beyond its significance as a reference work of rich archival value, Freedom's Odyssey will be of interest to current scholars, teachers, and students in various fields.
