Editorial Reviews

Review

Black Texans is the history of African Americans in Texas from 1528 to 1995. those dates mean that Blacks have lived in Texas for more than 400 years - longer than in any other region of the United States. Black Texans examines the periods of exploration and colonization, slavery, Reconstruction, the struggle to retain the freedoms gained, the 20th century urban experience, and the modern civil rights movement. Alwyn Bar covers each of these periods in terms of their politics, violence, and legal status; labor and economic status; education; and social life. Black Texans includes the history of the buffalo soldiers and the cowboys on Texas cattle drives, along with the achievements of notable African-American individuals in Texas history from Estevan the explorer through state senator Barbara Jordan. Black Texans is a "must" for all Black Studies and Western American History collections. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
This is a book that should be in the School History curriculum. Me being a white american. I was not exposed to the history of black americans. But the author refers to themselves as African Americans. But I really feel the term should be Americans (Americans with African decents) I was never aware of the history until now, other than media history. Which I feel that if America is going to get past this racial war, than the history needs to be brought forth. This book is a wonderful experience into the trials and tribulations that were experienced by the slaves of yesteryear.

I really enjoyed reading Black Texans! It gave me, an African American living in Texas, a lot of in depth history and insight to the journey of the black person, especially in Texas. It is not biased and is not written in a negative tone. The book does not even portray other races in negative light. It simply tells the facts as they are. I recommend this to book to everyone.

This book was very informative but it did not have the information that I wanted. I had been doing some research on a relative and I thought I would gain some insight on what life was like during that time period. The book was in excellent condition and I did receive it within a reasonable amount of time.

A great overview of Blacks in Texas. A great supplement to a textbook study and historical overview. I do wish the book was longer.
