Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4 Up
This ambitious work covers the history of the African people in America from the 1400s to the present. Historical photographs, archival documents, maps, and a fact-filled time line provide a visually stimulating introduction to the subject. The illustrations are accompanied by informational paragraphs with bold headings such as "Kidnapped!" and "Wanted: Runaways!" that draw readers into the story of the long struggle, social change, and continuing discrimination that mark the African-American experience. Abolitionists and the Civil War, jazz and literature during the Harlem Renaissance, African Americans in sports and the military, and the Civil Rights Movement are just some of the topics discussed. Thumbnail sketches of important figures, including Phyllis Wheatley [sic], Booker T. Washington, Rosa Parks, and Barack Obama, engage readers' attention. The last chapter, "Resources," includes a list of "Laws & Proclamations" and "Charts & Graphs." The book is more visually appealing but less comprehensive than Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler's The African American Family Album (Oxford Univ., 1998) or Walter Dean Myers's Now Is Your Time!: The African-American Struggle for Freedom (HarperCollins, 1991). Masoff provides a tremendous amount of material in an exciting, appealing title that is useful for browsing, introductory lessons, quick reference, and beginning research.

    A must read for those who love American History

    I borrowed the book from my local public library for my children. They both love history and was so pleased with reading the book. I had to buy it. My kids use it as a coffeetable book too. So, when their friend visit they read it too. It also list glossary for kids to reference to.
