Stanford University historian Kennell Jackson's unusual approach asks (and answers) several hundred questions about black history. The questions range from "What are some basic facts about Africa?" which counters popular misconceptions about the continent, to "What does the future hold for Black America?" which offers a series of optimistic predictions. The questions are arranged chronologically and include people, facts, and issues everyone should know something about. Most of his mini-essays are 1,000 to 1,500 words long, making this an ideal book for busy people or curious commuters.From the Publisher:
Using the same engaging and accessible Q&A format as the bestselling book Don't Know Much About History, this popular history moves from the African origins of blacks in America to today, and is a vibrant resource for everyone interested in the significant events and achievements of African-American culture.
