A great black river surges in opposition to the powerful currents of slavery and racism: This is black history--American history--boldly and triumphantly redefined by Vincent Harding. From an unflinchingly black perspective, Harding writes of the well-known members of the struggle--Nat Turner, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman--and the anonymous as well. 24 pages of photos.
This is the story of the violation of Black Africa and the bondage of its peoples in another land. Harding resurrects forgotten heroes and traces the struggle of their descendants to keep the spirit and dreams of an uprooted people alive.
