A Guide: To The Negro in American History.
Halliday, J. Stuart; Cox, Buford Jr.
The black American has played a significant part in the development of the United States and the making of its institutions, but unfortunately historians have failed to objectively record and properly deal with Negro history. This instructional guide for secondary students, written in outline form, attempts to portray Negro history as an integral part of the American past and includes a broad yet comprehensive study of the Negro from early African civilizations of 700 A.D. to the present and, moreover, provides a projected look into the future. Emphasis is upon the many contributions and achievements that Negroes made throughout the nation as developers, inventors, defenders, leaders, educators, explorers, scientists, performers in the field of theatre, art, music, and literature and especially as contributors and builders of democracy. Twenty-one chapters depict a race forced from freedom into oppression and their continual struggle for human dignity through the American Revolution, Civil War, World Wars I and II, the civil rights revolution of the 1950's, and the period of struggle during the 1960's and 1970's. Many black contributors to American culture are listed in the last chapter. A bibliography of ethnic materials is appended. (SJM)
