Great Researched Book

This is a must have book for all Americans. The history that one may have been taught is incomplete without incorporating African American History into the entire fabric of American History.

This book is a great source of Black history. The Black Wall Street is one of the biggest tales of Black wealth, and it too is missing. Hope to see in next editions. Overall, I loved it.

One Of The Best

Any additional comments?

There are lots of books about Black Americans but this one ranks among the best. Well written, user-friendly layout, addressing a broad range of topics, this is recommended for a home or classroom library to teach that all members of a society contribute to its advancement and that our society must be inclusive of all members.
