The purpose of writing this text is to advance ad trasmit broad knowledge of the history, culture and linkages among peoples of Africa and their descendants in the New World. The major aim of this text is to provide intelledtual tools to analyze, understand, and address the significant social, political, economic and humanist problems African American face. This text is comprised of approaches that focus on several different configurations of African people as defined by their location, migration and reconstructions on the continent in the Western Hemisphere and elsewhere, programs in the discipline (whether global, continental, diasporic or national in focus) integrate several disciplinary perspectives to examine the historical and contemporary expereinces, conditions, and aspirations of African descendant people.
the intent of this text is to reach out and speak to the non-specialist general public reader, and the newly arrived college student for which this course is required, thus,k providing a text that is not difficult to understand because of heavy academic language. The art of hisstory is to tell the human story in everyday English. The interpretation of the historian should be without bias and distortion because history has been used throughout history to tell the story of the victors, who then writes the history of the losers. This is a flesh interpretation of U.S. history and Black Americans.

Joseph E. Holloway is both a Ford And Fiulbright Scholar. He is also the author over ten books and thrity articles including Africanisms in the United States, The African Heritage of American English with Winifred K. Vass and Liberian Diplomacy in Africa.Review:
I very much like the content of the book. I think the choice of topics is good, and I think it gives an American University student an excellent overview of African American history. In particular, I think it is highly suitable for African Americans, as a way folr them to find out who they are. It is also importgant that students of other ethnic background in thuis country read the book because it will help themn better understand their fellow Americans. In summary this is a good book on the African American Experience.
