Each book in the Lucent Library of Black History examines an event or time period of particular significance in African American history. Every effort is made to place the events under discussion in context so that readers will understand the connection between black history and the broad sweep of America's story. Each chapter contains sidebars that highlight relevant personalities or events. Numerous photos and illustrations support the text. A time line, complete documentation for all quotes, and two annotated bibliographies enhance the value of these books as research tools for students.

I assigned this to my students for Black History Month. The writing is clear and well organized, and it covers the period well for students.
