From the Back Cover:

Collecting some of the most significant and representative primary documents in African American history, this important new anthology illustrates such enduring themes as the experience of slavery and the growth of a strong black protest tradition. It also incorporates the latest research in the field, including the distinct experiences of black women and the development of African American culture and communities. Volume Two begins with the onset of Reconstruction and concludes with the start of the twenty-first century. It covers the rise and fall of Jim Crow, the process of urbanization during the first half of the twentieth century, the origins and development of the modern Civil Rights movement, and concludes with documents illustrating the range of political and social opinions that characterize contemporary black life.
