It is impossible to understand America without understanding the history of African Americans. The Encyclopedia of African American History, 1619-1895 documents the full range of the African American experience during that period and shows how all aspects of American culture, history, and national identity have been profoundly influenced by the experiences of African Americans. The Encyclopedia covers an extraordinary range of subjects, such as: abolitionism, black nationalism, black seafarers, Buffalo Soldiers, The Civil War, oratory and verbal arts, Reconstruction, religion and slavery, Underground Railroad, and voting rights.show more
