THE ATLAS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY AND POLITICS consists of more than 150 originally produced maps which trace the African experience throughout the world and in America. The volume traces the complete history of African-Americans and their lives, employing artfully-conceived maps, and enhanced by sharply-written historic narratives, graphically reinforcing the facts. This work is appropriate for courses in African American history and American history where instructors would like to integrate African American history into their curricula.
Smallwood is the Director of African-American Studies at Bradley University.
Color maps of Africa, the Atlantic, the Western Hemisphere, the US, and parts of the country trace the forced and voluntary movements of a people. The 145 maps cover early slavery, free blacks and slaves in the new republic, the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Great Depression, the civil rights movement, African-American counterculture, and the 1990s. Each is accompanied by explanatory text. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
