African Americans: A Concise History is designed for one-semester survey courses of African-American history or for instructors who would like a concise narrative that can be supplemented with outside readings. African Americans draws on recent research to present black history in a clear and direct manner and within the broader social, cultural, and political framework of American history. It provides thorough coverage of African-American women as active builders of black culture and extensive treatment of African-American art, literature, and music. Balancing accounts of the actions of African-American leaders with investigations of the lives of ordinary men and women, a community focus helps makes this a history of people rather than an account of a few extraordinary individuals.
