9781433107436: African-American History: An Introduction

Every year more colleges and high schools are offering classes (and often making them required classes) in black history. Joanne Turner-Sadler provides a concise and probing treatment of 400 years of black history in America that can be used with age groups ranging from lower high school to college. In African American History: An Introduction the author touches on key figures and events that have shaped African American culture beginning with a look at Africa and its various civilizations and the migration of the African people to America. Some essential topics covered are: the struggle with slavery, the role African Americans played in America’s wars (including the current war in Iraq), race riots and unions, the NAACP, civil rights, and black power movements, the Harlem Renaissance, issues in education, the journey into the West, legal cases such as Plessy vs. Ferguson and Brown vs. Board of Education, African Americans as athletes, entertainers, and statesmen.
This book is an indispensable addition to all library collections as well as a teaching tool for instructors. It is heavily illustrated (photos, maps, timelines) with useful end-of-the-chapter questions and activities for further study and includes a handy bibliography of suggested readings and an index. New in this edition is a section on the historic election of Barack Obama, the first African American president of the United States. Interesting connections Obama has to past presidents are explored as well. This edition also contains enhanced discussions of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, and the historic positions both held.

About the Author:

The Author: Joanne Turner-Sadler is Assistant Professor of Education at Daemen College in Amherst, New York. She has a bachelors in sociology, a M.A. in education, and a doctorate in education administration. She has been an elementary school teacher, Supervisor of Curriculum, and Coordinator of the African American Program for the Buffalo public schools. Dr. Sadler is also a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, an international women’s community service organization.

Review:

«In colleges and universities across the country there is a stunning contradiction. Many people recognize the significance of the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency of the United States, and at the same time they have little knowledge about the history of those whose courage and sacrifice made the event possible. Dr. Turner-Sadler’s study will help rectify this deficiency. The new edition is considerably updated, and at the same time it remains immanently readable, thorough, and accessible to students at many different levels. The volume lends itself well to many different disciplines and a wide variety of courses.» (Edwin Clausen, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Daemen College)
