Lucent Library of Black History: Set 1
Black history is an essential aspect of American history, but the contributions of and struggles faced by African Americans often do not get sufficient attention in discussions of the history of the United States as a whole. As readers explore each topic, a clearer picture begins to emerge of the African American experience. Engaging text, including informative sidebars and annotated quotes, examines the rich history of black inventors, musicians, politicians, writers, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, and actors. Their stories are enhanced by historical images and current photographs, as well as a detailed timeline of relevant events.
