The Afro-American Readings.
Baker, Ross K., Ed.
The aim of this reader is to explore the relevance of the Afro-American relationship to the cultural identity, self-concept, and social and political cohesion of the black communities of North America. Selections touch not only upon the contemporary upsurge of interest in things African, but also upon the relationships between a group of Americans and their origin, and the effects and consequences of this relationship. The first five chapters deal with African and African-American history, and the last three deal with the contemporary outlook of Africans and African-Americans. Both primary and secondary source materials are used; these facilitate both the evaluation of writings contemporaneous to particular historical problems and the gains reached by the benefit of increments in knowledge and historical perspective.
