Full of vivid biographical portraits of people and events, Creating Black Americans brings both the remarkable accomplishments and hardships of the African American experience to life. From the 17th-century slave trade to the present, this engrossing narrative profiles significant black figures in history such as Olaudah Equiano (one of the first African slaves to leave a written account), Homer Plessy (of Plessy v. Ferguson and the 1897 Supreme Court decision “separate but equal) and Malcolm X, whose legacy and autobiography still lives on. Also highlighted are the eras that have helped define the black experience—the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, the Civil War, the Civil Rights movement and the present day Hip-Hop movement. It’s a must-have for every black household!
