Summary
This new resource provides comprehensive coverage of the many events that define the framework of African American history, including social, cultural, and political movements, and the struggles to gain freedom, equality and civil rights. Just as the history of African Americans has been dominated by struggles for freedom and equal rights, articles in Great Events from History: African American History emphasize key events in the study of slavery, the abolitionist movement, civil rights, discrimination, voting rights, and Supreme Court decisions. Other events focus on arts and entertainment, Black Nationalism, crime and punishment, economic issues, education, military history, politics & government, religion, riots and civil disturbances and women's issues. Take a look at just some of the recent events that are included in this comprehensive source: * The election of Barack Obama in 2009* The opening of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington DC in 2011* The Black lives Matter movement of 2012* The "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" protests in Ferguson, MO in 2014. Essays have been supplemented with informational sidebars that will further inform a reader's understanding of the topics discussed, including primary source documents, court decisions, mission statements, laws, biographical profiles, and state statistics that will deepen a reader's understanding of the topic. Designed for high school, undergraduate and public libraries, this new resource provides students and researchers with comprehensive and accessible material designed to shed a new light on the study of African American history. -- Amazon.com
