9780064460552: The Black Americans: A History in Their Own Words

‘Meltzer has produced [and updated] a single volume [a condensation of his three-volume In Their Own Words] that covers three and a half centuries of black life in the United States, consisting of source materials: letters, speeches, newspaper articles, and book excerpts. From this collage a vivid picture emerges of the power, passion, and pride of black life.’ —C.
