Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up?A social and cultural pictorial history of the African American experience. Beginning with life in pre-colonial Africa, the Hooblers make superb use of personal histories, autobiographies, slave narratives, and other original documents to paint a vivid picture of life in medieval Africa, in Africa during the slave trade, and of the lives of slaves and former slaves in the U.S. Readers are introduced to a complex set of historical events, presented in a simple, yet moving manner. They come to know how it must have felt to live in slavery, to be a part of Reconstruction, to experience Jim Crow, and to migrate from the oppression of the South to liberation in the North. There are extensive quotes from African slaves such as Venture and Olaudah Equiano, from freed slaves such as Solomon Northrup and Moses Grandy, and from more recognizable personalities such as Frederick Douglass and Langston Hughes. Complementing the excerpts from primary sources are a rich mix of period black-and-white photographs and archival reproductions. An excellent addition to any collection.?Carol Jones Collins, Montclair Kimberley Academy,

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent resouce for African American history, well-organized, concise, extensive and enlightening. It begins with a history of Africa, a definite plus. Each chapter starts off with an overview of a time period, all in chronological order, followed by fascinating first-person accounts. Facing the first page of most chapters is a family photo from that time period -it's interesting to see the progression. Not all photos are sharply printed but all reveal truths in telling and immediate ways. Events and dates are personalized in word and picture, what better way can there be to experience history?
