Resilience and triumph in the face of a tragic past has marked the trajectory of African Americans over time. Marginalized and relegated to slave status, early African Americans encountered endless obstacles in trying to secure freedom and basic human rights. The remarkable achievements of African Americans and the struggles—past and present—with which they have been confronted, are the subjects of this engrossing series. From heart-breaking to awe-inspiring, the accounts described within these pages leave the reader with new insight and appreciation for this extraordinary culture—and the individuals whose accomplishments and sacrifices have made it what it is today.
