Publisher's Summary

African Americans have played major roles in building the great American experience and building the history of the United States. From years of perpetual slavery to years of Jim Crow, African Americans have endured mutilations, genocide, lynching, fear, and intimidation and they are still standing today making America strong...from slavery to the White House.
