African American Chronology by Kwando M. KinshasaWhere were the first African American churches founded? When did Frederick Douglass deliver his first anti-slavery speech? Who de-segregated Major League Baseball? The turbulent history of African Americans unfolds in historical waves, through rights and injustices, migration, inventions and art, protests, legislation, and accomplishments. From the first recorded arrival of Africans in the New World to the death of Rosa Parks, a chronology of events ties history together for the reader, giving a greater sense of the struggle, alienation, and triumph of blacks in America. The African American Chronology introduces the student researcher to the most impactful events in African American history, drawing from such categories as: Abolitionism, civil rights, economics, marriage, religion, media, literature, science, crime and war. Organized by date and including entries through 2005, the Chronology is one of the most accessible and current of its kind. The fascinating historical record is illuminated through primary source sidebars, illustrations, a glossary, print and online bibliography, and index.
